Allen Chapel

Allen Chapel is known for its pristine acoustics, peaceful setting, and intimate feel, making it an ideal location for chamber concerts, vocal recitals, and other student recitals as well as concerts of larger ensembles, such as the RIT Gospel Ensemble, RIT Philharmonic Orchestra, and RIT Singers.

It is the current home of the RIT Performing Arts: Faculty Spotlight recital series and the annual RIT Advent Lessons and Carols service. Allen Chapel is maintained by Spirituality & Religious Life.
