Loyola University Chicago's Madonna della Strada Chapel is home to Goulding and Wood Opus 47, the Katheryn "Kay" Stamm Memorial Organ. This pipe organ of three manuals and pedal, 70 ranks is the musical crown jewel of our chapel. The instrument leads music every weekend for Sunday Mass and is heard monthly at our 3rd Sunday at 3:00 p.m. concert series.

We extend a warm invitation for you to come and enjoy our instrument. Organists wishing to play the instrument are welcome to contact the Chapel's Music Director Steven Betancourt to set up an appointment. He is best reached by e-mail at sbetancourt@luc.edu.
