Commencement 2012 – Eastman Theater

By: Dana

The Eastman Theater is a historic venue within the Rochester community.  Built by George Eastman as a center for music, dance, and silent film with orchestral and organ accompaniment, the building first opened in 1922. Since its opening, the theater has undergone a series of renovations.  The renovations were completed in the fall of 2009, and in October of that same year, the hall reopened as Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. Today, the Eastman Theater serves as the primary concert hall for the Eastman School’s larger ensembles, including its orchestras, wind ensembles, jazz ensembles, and chorale.  It also is the principal hall for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, and is used periodically throughout the year by a variety of community organizations for concerts, lectures, and other special events. 

Sunday, June 10, 2012, Eastman Theater served again as the location for our very own Simon School of Business Commencement ceremony.  Students, faculty, staff, family and friends came together to celebrate our graduates as they begin the next chapter in their lives.  On behalf of the Simon School Admissions Office, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Class of 2012! We wish you well, and look forward to working with each of you as alumni in the future – Congratulations again, and best of luck in all of your future endeavors!
