Esther Eastman Music Center

Completed in 2005, the Esther Eastman Music Center is a cornerstone of community life at Hotchkiss, housing classrooms and practice facilities and drawing top-notch musicians from all over the globe. Visiting artists often lead master classes — and share the stage with students during performances in the 715-seat Katherine M. Elfers Hall. In addition to musical performances, the Esther Eastman Music Center and Katherine M. Elfers Hall also hosts all-School assemblies during the academic year and the Summer Portals concert series.
