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.
