Chapel Of The Chimes Beautiful, light-filled chapel within the Chapel of the Chimes complex in Oakland. Seats approximately 130. Jazz concerts are held monthly as part of the “Jazz at the Chimes” series.

Chapel of the Chimes was founded in 1909 as a crematory and columbarium—a building dedicated exclusively to the placement and honoring of cremated remains. The structure was expanded and re-built in 1928 based on designs by Julia Morgan—one of the premier architects of the 20th century. Today, it is one of the Bay Area’s most beautiful buildings.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
