Fodor's Review

A welcome visual and physical oasis amid the high-rise hubbub of North Michigan Avenue, this Gothic Revival house of worship was the first big building erected on the avenue after the Chicago Fire. Designed by Ralph Adams Cram, the church drew many of its congregants from the city's elite. Local architect Howard van Doren Shaw devised the cloister and companion buildings. In July and August, free concerts are staged every Friday at 12:10 beside the courtyard fountain off Michigan Avenue; other months they're performed in the sanctuary.
