Bastyr University Chapel (December)
14500 Juanita Dr NE
Kenmore, WA 98028

A European-styled chapel with world-class acoustics, near the city yet nestled in the woods...

Built in 1958 by the finest craftsmen, the Bastyr University Chapel is home to 31 hand-crafted stained glass windows, brilliant glass mosaic tilework, and an ambience truly unlike any other space in the Seattle area.  The Chapel has been used for recording movie soundtracks since the mid-1990s, including scores for "Mr. Holland's Opus," "About Schmidt," and "Brokeback Mountain."  Attendees sit in chairs or the dark oak pews, enjoying the music while taking in the marble columns and hand-carved oak paneling which surrounded the audience and musicians.
