Kilbourn Hall is a music and performing arts venue in the East End. It is part of the Eastman School of Music and is 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. It is also a frequent choice for commercial recording sessions due to its fine acoustics . . . Three stories high and decorated in the Venetian Renaissance style, the 455-seat hall is well known for its remarkable beauty, pure acoustics, and excellent sight lines."
Kilbourn Hall opened in 1924 and was built by George Eastman, who named it after his mother, Maria Kilbourn Eastman.
Kilbourn is a popular venue for both the Rochester International Jazz Festival and the Rochester Fringe Festival.
