The Malmgren Concert Series at Hendricks Chapel was made possible by a generous gift to Hendricks Chapel from alumna Esther Malmgren ’42 in 1991. The free Sunday afternoon concerts held throughout the year feature a wide variety of music.
Upcoming concerts in the 2006-07 series include organist Katharine Pardee (Sept. 17); the Baltimore Consort (Feb. 25, 2007) and Ethos percussion ensemble, accompanied by organist Christopher Marks (April 15, 2007).
