Eastman is an amazing community of artists, performers, composers, and scholars who are committed to preparing students for meaningful lives in music. The questions we grapple with are: What will these lives look like years into the future?, and: How can we best prepare our students to lead and shape that future? We believe that a core foundation of absolute musical excellence, enhanced by innovative initiatives like the Institute for Music Leadership, provides the formula for inspiring outstanding musicians to make a difference in the world through music. Engraved on the façade of the Eastman Theatre is the phrase, “for the enrichment of community life.” We are committed to enriching life through music.
