Music in the Chapel
The Music in the Chapel series showcases an eclectic range of performers and local musicians for musical performances that showcase the acoustical charms of this historic and unique architectural landmark, right in the heart of the city.
Join us this October as we welcome Siama’s Congo Roots for a beautiful fall performance in the chapel.
Back in Africa, Siama recorded hundreds of songs and toured the world with popular artists. Now based in Minneapolis, he’s known for his intricate guitar, catchy songs, spirited singing and traditional African instruments like Mbira and Balafon. Join Siama for this very special musical journey.

The Historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel
This event will take place in the beautiful and historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel. This stunning building was built in 1910 by architect Harry Wild Jones, and is modeled after the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul. It is one of the only examples of Byzantine style chapels in the US, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Click here for more information on the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.
Signs will be posted directing you to the event location or click here for GPS navigation through Google Maps.
Bike parking is also available at a bike rack near the front gate.
Parking is available on any of the roads inside Lakewood’s gates unless otherwise noted with a no parking sign. Handicap parking will be available near the chapel entrance. Lakewood does not have an onsite parking lot – it is street parking only. This means you may have to park a short distance away and walk. We strongly encourage carpooling and taking public transportation.
There is a bus that stops right outside of Lakewood’s gates.
There is also a nice ride station available on 34th/Hennepin, and 36th/Bryant. Lakewood only has one small bike rack.
