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 spring quarter, come and see the student circus Le Vorris & Vox, hear Ellen Hargis and an ensemble of women’s voices singing the rich polyphony of new Spain, listen to C.P.E. Bach on the piano and J.S. Bach on Bond Chapel’s lovely Reneker organ, and much more!
And any weekday, come for a tower tour, a meditation session, or some carillon or organ music.
