The Eastman Community Music School is proud to present free weekly concerts featuring artists from the Eastman School of Music and ECMS. Faculty and Student Performances from both schools offer an excellent opportunity to hear some of the best musicians that Rochester has to offer and all performances are absolutely free!

Concerts take place every Thursday from late October through May at 12:15pm. This year's series will begin on October 21 with a live performance from Eastman's Campus!

You can join us in person in Sproull Atrium at 27 Gibbs Street or on YouTube Live on October 21.
