On the third Thursday of each month, October through May, the Eastman School of Music and the Memorial Art Gallery present varied concert programs by faculty and guest artists featuring Eastman’s Italian Baroque Organ.
The Third Thursday concert series provides musicians and music-lovers the opportunity to experience authentic Baroque music on a regular basis. Its concerts highlight Eastman’s Italian Baroque Organ, which was built around 1770 in central Italy. Restored and installed in 2005 at the Memorial Art Gallery, the instrument is the only one of its kind in North America. The organ’s beautiful, authentic sounds have been heard by thousands of visitors who attend weekly Sunday mini-recitals and special “Third Thursday” concerts by internationally celebrated guest artists and Eastman musicians.
Free with gallery admission. Tickets: $25-$23-$14, which is half-price on Thursday evenings after 5 pm and free to University of Rochester staff, students, and faculty ID holders. https://mag.rochester.edu/about/#tickets
Please arrive early as seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. This concert series is made possible by the Rippey Endowed Trust.
