All Concerts are free, handicapped accessible and are held in Hendricks Chapel.

Hendricks Chapel is committed to bringing arts of the highest quality to the Syracuse community at the lowest possible cost. The Malmgren Concert Series was made possible by a generous gift to Hendricks Chapel in 1991 from Esther Malmgren, a Syracuse University alumna. The series usually consists of three or four concerts a year, many of which feature the organ, Mrs. Malmgren’s favorite instrument.
