The Hale Library Concert Series is a cultural outreach program of The Friends of the K-State Libraries and would not be possible without the generosity of sponsors. Additional sponsorships are available. The series was established to feature the talents of K-State faculty and alumni in an intimate setting while supporting the endowment fund for the refurbishment and upkeep of K-State Libraries' Mason and Hamlin grand piano.

Invite a friend and enjoy an evening of beautiful music and good company. Online reservations are available via the KSU Foundation, or you may contact Darchelle Martin, K-State Libraries events and programs coordinator, for sponsorships, reservations or further information.
