Summer@Eastman COVID Information Central


Due to continuing Coronavirus restrictions in New York State and at the University of Rochester, Summer@Eastman is moving most of its programs online for Summer 2021. We feel strongly that this is the best way to ensure the safety of our faculty, staff, and participants. By making this decision early, we have more time to plan for the online reality and to work towards improving our participants’ online experience.


UPDATE (March 1, 2021): The Eastman Experience programs, Summer Classical Studies and Summer Jazz Studies, will remain in an online-only format for Summer 2021. 

We still hope to be able to hold our local day camps in person (Adventure Music Camp and High School Wind Ensemble Workshop); we will communicate our decision about these programs by April 1, 2021.


UPDATE (November 23, 2020): Due to COVID-19, the 2021 Study Abroad in Paris program has been cancelled. As a replacement, Dr. Robert Hasegawa will be teaching the online course Analyzing Contemporary Music. The new course will be offered for credit and noncredit, and will run from June 28-August 6, 2021. Visit the course web page for more details.

Our faculty are already hard at work designing engaging and inspiring programs for Summer 2021. We hope you’ll join us!
