Rochester Review


So You Want to Be a Conductor?

After visiting a new summer program for aspiring conductors launched by the Eastman School, Review quizzes some of the school’s resident maestros about what it takes to lead a group of world-class musicians. By Jayne Denker

A Community Responds

Rochester joins academic institutions across the country in opening its doors to displaced students and lending its expertise to damaged communities in the wake of last summer’s devastating hurricanes. By Ryan Whirty

President Joel Seligman


“Our work is but begun,” President Joel Seligman says, finding new meaning in the words of Rochester’s first president as he discusses the University’s future in the 21st century. For only the 10th time in its 155-year history, Rochester inaugurates a new president, and Review captures highlights—including Seligman’s inaugural address—from the ceremonies.
