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 autumn quarter, come and hear David Schrader playing Bach as part of WFMT's Chicago Bach Project, and Dennis James playing live organ accompaniment to the silent film Hands of Orlac; listen to Third Coast Percussion making their magic at a Sunday service; hear the choir sing Mozart and Schütz, and much more!

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