Hamline Sundin Music Hall with a Playing Orchestra

Sundin Music Hall

The Heart of Music at Hamline

Many Twin Cities arts organizations consider Sundin Music Hall their preferred concert venue, including Lyra Baroque, The Minnesota Guitar Society, and The Bach Society of Minnesota.

Sundin Music Hall is recognized for its intimate, warm ambiance and recording-quality acoustics. The 325-seat performance hall is a much sought-after venue for recitals, chamber music concerts, and lectures. Sundin is one of the most intimate and best-sounding performance spaces in the Twin Cities. Literally, there is not a bad seat in the house.

Students perform in the hall regularly each semester. Whether they are in one of Hamline University's music ensembles, performing a senior recital, or simply auditioning for a music scholarship, each student will often find themselves in Sundin Hall.
