The Eastman at Washington Square concert series, presented by Eastman Community Music School, will continue its 23rd season from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. Thursdays at First Universalist Church, 150 S. Clinton Ave., Rochester.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch as they listen to free performances by Eastman School of Music and ECMS faculty, students, alumni and friends. Each week will highlight a particular genre of music.

The series was initiated in 1994. The church, which was dedicated in 1908, was designed by noted Rochester architect Claude Fayette Bragdon in Romanesque style and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

“This series embodies the true spirit of Eastman,” said Sophia Gibbs Kim, ECMS director. “Not only does it feature a diversity of musical genres, but the featured artists reflect the many faces of Eastman — faculty, students and alumni from both the collegiate level Eastman School of Music and the Eastman Community Music School — performing in a historic church building in downtown Rochester.”

If Rochester City School District schools are closed due to inclement weather, the concert will be canceled.
