Six Weeks and Counting to Theatre Opening

This week, RPO PR Director Amy Blum (pictured 2nd from right, along with Wendy Borden, Karen VerSteeg, and Linda Altpeter of the Eastman School of Music) took a tour of the renovations at the Eastman Theatre.

The new boxes are now in place, and there are about 100 workers on a variety of projects in the Theatre and in the adjacent building under construction. The chandelier has been cleaned – with 750 new bulbs – and is now back up, some of the carpeting is done, and the lobby lounges are being painted.

And don’t miss your chance to hear the RPO perform Beethoven’s Ninth in the renovated Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, Opening Weekend, October 8, 10 and 11. Click here for more info.
