The acoustics of Kirkpatrick Chapel are much like the music halls of Europe. With its high and narrow architecture, the setting lends itself nicely to choirs and choruses as well as strings and brass.
The chapel includes a raised stage where you’ll find our distinctive Mason & Hamlin grand piano whose tone derives from original Boston-era designs executed with scrupulous attention to detail. The full, powerful bass, lyrical tenor, bell-like treble tones, and tremendous sustain are qualities that together define the Mason & Hamlin sound.
Choral risers, music stands, and armless chairs are available.
Kirkpatrick Chapel is handicapped accessible. Seating capacity is 440 with a total occupancy rating of 650.
For more information, please call 848-932-7808 during business hours 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday or email Patrick Cogan, operations manager.
“Thank you for all your work in making our concert in Kirkpatrick Chapel a success. -The orchestra found the chapel to be clean and well organized. Materials needed for the concert were well within reach. I don’t think I’ve seen the chapel in finer shape.”
