In response to the ongoing impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Wheaton College is altering its operations and moving to remote course instruction and operations for the remainder of the spring semester. The College’s statement can be found here.

As a result, ALL on-campus, in-person events events have been cancelled through August 1, 2020.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this global challenge and we look forward to welcoming you back to campus when we are able to resume normal operations.

The Mary Bloor Loser ’42 Musical Series was established in 1987 through the generosity of Thomas N. Loser and Ann Bloor, husband and mother of the late Mary Bloor Loser, Wheaton Class of 1942, to honor her love of music and of Wheaton. For many years the series has offered members of the Wheaton College community an opportunity to hear the work of major musical performers. We have been privileged to host these artists:
