Celebrator of the Arts

The world-renowned Eastman School of Music has given rise to generations of musicians and composers, while the Hochstein Music School has a tradition of making the arts accessible. The Eastman Theater, home to the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, hosts concerts of world-renowned artists and local musicians. Individual achievers with recognized stature in the arts have lived in the area, including singer William Warfield, choreographer Garth Fagan, and architect Claude Bragdon. The Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Rochester hosts an array of traveling exhibits as well as displays from its permanent collection. The Eastman House is a nationally recognized repository for historic films and also contains an International Museum of Photography.
