• Music at Hamline University

    Music is everywhere at Hamline. Students walking around campus will find concerts in Sundin Music Hall, musicals in Anne Simley Theatre, impromptu jam sessions, open mics, perhaps even the sounds of the Indonesian Gamelan floating over the air. Students are encouraged to participate in ensembles, shows, and small groups such as jazz combos or chamber music ensembles. Music activities, ensembles, lessons, and courses are open to all students, regardless of major.
