Organ recitals at Rockefeller and Bond

During the academic year, from late September to early June, regular recitals are given on the organs at both Rockefeller and Bond Chapels. Rockefeller’s E.M. Skinner organ is played in recital on Tuesdays at 4:30 pm. Both organs are also played daily in practice and in performance, for all manner of academic and ceremonial events.


Tea & Pipes

Tea & Pipes, a weekly recital on Rockefeller Chapel’s lovely Skinner organ, occurs every Tuesday during the academic year, begins again for the winter quarter on Tuesday January 3. With tea served from 4 pm, the music begins at 4:30 pm.

Come and hear University organist Thomas Weisflog, distinguished guests, and students from the Rockefeller organ studio play a mixture of Baroque, Romantic, and contemporary music on the E.M. Skinner organ. Enjoy the experience of sitting in Rockefeller Chapel and being swept into the vast emotional capacities of the organ’s ranks of pipes: trumpets, gentle voices, sounds matching harp and flute and chimes. Free and open to all.


Major quarterly recitals

Major recitals are played at least quarterly, and details of upcoming major recitals can be found on the events page. The organs are also played in conjunction with choirs, solo instrumentalists, and ensembles of various kinds.
