MARCH 20 CONCERT POSTPONED - we apologize for the inconvenience! The Jazz Combos will play on April 17 instead. We hope to see you then!

  • Free Concert! Enjoy live music of different genres during lunch, performed by students and faculty of the Hayes School of Music.
  • Concerts are at 1:00 on the second Wednesday of each month, starting on October 11. 
  • Location: Rotunda of Sanford Commons in Central Dining Hall. No purchase is necessary to enjoy the concert, since visitors may enter the public seating area to access the Rotunda, but a wide variety of meal options are available. (See dining venues here - the ones noted as Sanford Commons are right next to the concert.)
  • Music students interested in performing, please contact your professor to learn more. 
  • Visitors coming to campus for the concerts may find it most convenient to park in the Rivers Street Deck (see the web page for how to park) and walk across the Skybridge, which connects with Central Dining Hall.
