Malmgren Concert Series

The Esther Drake and John Vincent Malmgren Concert Series was made possible by a generous gift from Syracuse University alumna Esther Malmgren to Hendricks Chapel in 1991.  The series offers the Syracuse community the highest quality of arts at no cost.  The series typically includes three-to-four concerts each year at Hendricks Chapel, many of which feature the organ, Esther Malmgren’s favorite instrument.


New for 2019-20

This fall, Hendricks Chapel unites the Malmgren Concert Series and Dean’s Convocation into a new weekly series, titled Music and Message. The program features musical performances and spoken reflection from a diversity of religious and spiritual perspectives. These inclusive gatherings bridge campus and community and seek to spark inspiration, peace, and wellbeing for all. For the complete schedule of concerts and events, visit the Music and Message webpage. This program is supported by The Esther Drake and John Vincent Malmgren Endowment and features Esther's beloved organ.
