Events at Rockefeller and Bond Chapel

Rockefeller Chapel and Bond Chapel are cherished for a wide variety of artistic, academic, life ceremonial, and spiritual events. Traditionally, we present or host more than fifty pre-scheduled events per week in the two Chapels, in addition student lessons on carillon, organ, and in vocal ensembles. 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 inspiring architecture and historic instruments. Please read below for virtual programming and other resources.
