This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

Hailed by The New York Times as “an outstanding ensemble,” the Verona  string quartet begins their residency at Syracuse performing works of Beethoven, Ravel, Schumann and the world premiere of “Variations on the Syracuse Alma Mater” by a collective of Syracuse University faculty and alumni composers. The quartet will be joined by the new director of the Setnor School of Music, pianist Milton Laufer, for a portion of the program.

Join us as Hendricks Chapel unites the Malmgren Concert Series and Dean’s Convocation into a new weekly series that 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.
