Concert Series

Established in the fall of 2000, the Concert Series at Lenoir-Rhyne University serves the university community and the greater Hickory area by providing opportunities to hear and interact with superb musical artists. The Concert Series brings musical artists to the University to present concerts and recitals, work with students in the master class setting, lecture to music classes, and provide examples of professional artistry in music.

Through the University Friends of Music, supporters have the opportunity to help fund the Concert Series and the Friends of Music Summer Study Award. For more information on supporting the Concert Series, contact the Lenoir-Rhyne University Office of Advancement at 828 328 7822 or make your donation through our online form. This will take you to a form for Annual Fund donations. You will be able to designate your gift to the Friends of Music from a drop down box near the bottom of the form.

Artists wishing to be considered for appearance on the Concert Series may contact Dr. John Cheek at 828 328 7147 or John.Cheek@lr.edu
