Furman University’s Charles E. Daniel Memorial Chapel
Recognized as one of the most iconic structures on the Furman University campus, the Charles E. Daniel Memorial Chapel is more than a place of spiritual refreshment. It also provides a magnificent setting for musical performances by Furman students, faculty, and guest artists.
When you enter the sanctuary, the Hartness Organ is sure to catch your eye. This beautiful instrument, Opus 121 of the renowned American organ builder C.B. Fisk, was custom designed for a room described by legendary conductor Robert Shaw as “one of the most acoustically outstanding performance spaces in America.”
With 42 stops (or “voices”) and more than 2,900 pipes, the Hartness Organ is heard every year in solo recitals by our University Organist, Charles Tompkins; by Furman organ performance majors; and by nationally- and internationally- renowned organ recitalists.
