Program Notes

Originally commissioned by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra for the opening of the new Kodak Hall, Geo is a musical portrait of George Eastman (“Geo” being the way he signed his name). “Geo pays tribute to George’s dreams, revitalized as ‘Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre’” writes Douglas Lowry, “yet also salutes Eastman’s cinematic spirit in a style of music that moving pictures ultimately inspired.”

"The piece is divided into five sections: George is Awakened, George’s Elegy for Maria Kilbourn, Waltz, The Bustle of the 20th Century, and Opening Finale.

“Mr. Eastman would have been proud to see his school and his orchestra collaborating like this -- teamwork which has brought about the renovation of his Theatre,” adds Seaman. Geo Fanfare extracts the beginning and ending of the work, scored for wind ensemble into a fanfare celebrating both George Eastman’s and Douglas Lowry’s lives and their great contributions to the Eastman School of Music."
