Daniel Chapel Music Furman University

Recognized as one of the most iconic structures on our campus, the Charles E. Daniel Memorial Chapel is more than a spiritual place. It’s a performance venue for our faculty and students. Once you visit the chapel, you’ll understand why.

When you enter the chapel sanctuary, the Hartness Organ is sure to catch your eye. This magnificent instrument, an Opus 121 of the renowned C.B. Fisk Organ builders, was custom designed for a room described by legendary conductor Robert Shaw as "one of the most acoustically outstanding performance spaces in America."

Sporting three ranks with more than 2,900 pipes, the organ is used in exciting solo recitals by  our university organist, Charles Tompkins, as well as Furman organ majors and prominent guest artists such as Olivier Latry (Cathedral of Notre Dame), Craig Cramer (University of Notre Dame), Jason Roberts (2008 American Guild of Organists improvisational competition winner) and David Heller (Trinity University).

Daniel Chapel regularly hosts choral and instrumental concerts, solo recitals, weekly university worship services and organ master classes.
