Malmgren Concert Series

The Ester Drake and John Vincent Malmgren Concert Series was made possible by a generous gift from Syracuse University alumna Ester 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, Ester Malmgren’s favorite instrument.
