Area Attractions

Rochester isn’t just the home for Eastman School of Music.  It has been an American Industrial center and home to places like Kodak and Xerox.

Ride the wave with 2013 hosts James VanDemark (left), Professor of Double Bass and Co-Chair of Eastman’s Strings, Harp, and Guitar Department, and Jeff Campbell, Associate Professor of Jazz Studies & Contemporary Media.

If you haven’t had enough music in your life after ISB, stick around for the Rochester Jazz Festival.

Whether  you like museums, shopping, hip neighborhoods, or just a place to explore nature, the Rochester area has a lot to offer.
