Hope College Concert Series (HCCS) hosts concerts that aim to inspire the West Michigan and Hope College communities in areas of diversity, originality and openness.

By bringing successful musical talents to campus and promoting discussion about their artistic process and the issues addressed by their music, HCCS works to strengthen our community’s artistic voice and creative fellowship. 

It’s all part of our mission to expose the West Michigan and Hope College communities to a variety of high-quality musicians, rooted in artistic integrity and conversant around important issues relevant to the college’s mission.
