Library Concert Series


General Information

  • Concerts are in the East Reading Room, located in Baker Library. 
  • Concerts are generally two weeks during the academic term.
  • Concerts always start at 12:30 PM and last thirty minutes to an hour without intermission.
  • Performers must provide their own amplification equipment.
  • Performers may use the grand piano. 
  • Chairs, stools, and/or music stands will be provided.

Applying for the Program

  • Apply via the form here. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. 
  • All Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff are eligible to participate. Community members without a Dartmouth affiliation may perform as part of a group which includes at least one Dartmouth faculty, student, or staff member.
  • Student soloists and groups should have the approval of one faculty sponsor. This can be the students' studio teacher or any other faculty who has heard them play and can vouch for their level of preparation.
  • All genres are welcome! The venue is ideal for acoustic music as there is no production support for amplification equipment. 
  • A piano accompanist will be available for select concerts. If you need an accompanist, you must indicate this on your application. Rehearsal times are dependent on the accompanist’s availability.
  • We have very few rules, but the general guideline for soloists is 2-3 pieces or 10-15 minutes, whichever comes first.
