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.

2021 note on the Chapel's traditional Advent production of Handel's Messiah: due to the shift in academic calendar and pandemic mitigations, we will not be presenting a December Messiah this year. Please e-mail mboyman@uchicago.edu to be added to our mailing list for future productions.
