Events at Rockefeller and Bond Chapel
Rockefeller Chapel and Bond Chapel serve as major performing arts spaces on campus, as well as being cherished spaces for a wide variety of academic, ceremonial, and spiritual events. We present or host more than fifty events per week in the two Chapels and their associated meeting rooms, in addition to rehearsals and student lessons on the carillon and organ. 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!
Tuesday through Friday, come for a tower tour, a meditation session, or some carillon or organ music. See our visiting page for details of opening hours.
