Events at Rockefeller and Bond Chapel

Rockefeller Chapel and Bond Chapel are cherished spaces for a wide variety of academic, ceremonial, spiritual, and artistic events every week throughout the year. Some events are designed primarily for students, others for audiences and participants from the city of Chicago and far beyond. Visitors come from all over the world to see and hear our great musical instruments!

This winter quarter, come and hear the world première of Oka Ayasha, with words and music by Chickasaw Nation composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, in Rockefeller’s signature Quire & Place series (February 28), and see Libby Chaney’s fabric art installation Seasons (January 17 through March 3).

And any weekday, come for a tower tour, a meditation session, or some carillon or organ music.
