Community Concerts

Eastman Organ Community Concerts

The concert series features short organ recitals by Eastman students as part of the department’s ongoing initiative to bring outstanding organ music to the Rochester community. Performances are held in various churches around the area, giving residents many convenient opportunities to attend.  Since every pipe organ is different from others, both performers and concert-goers enjoy the diverse soundscapes and colors of the variety of instruments showcased throughout the series.  

 From November to May, students will perform monthly concerts that facilitate a musical connection between organists and the community beyond weekly Sunday services. Events are open to the public, and a free-will offering will benefit the Eastman Organ Department student travel fund.
