Kilbourn Hall

Considered by many to be one of the finest chamber music halls in the world, Kilbourn Hall serves as the primary location for faculty, student, and guest artist recitals, chamber music and jazz performances, and opera productions.

Opened in 1922, Kilbourn Hall was built by George Eastman and dedicated to the memory of his mother, Maria Kilbourn Eastman. Three stories high and decorated in the Venetian Renaissance style, the 444-seat hall is well known for its remarkable beauty, pure acoustics, and excellent sight lines.

All the music was wonderful

The mix of performers was amazing, and Clay's performance was breathtaking. I especially loved the final piece. Clearly everyone on stage was a consummate musician. I'm so glad I attended.
