Carillon Concert at Princeton University

January 14 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Sunday, repeating until June 24, 2018

Free

Enjoy a carillon concert every Sunday. Considered the largest musical instrument in the world, a carillon consists of a series of at least 23 tuned bells, played from a keyboard that allows expressiveness through variation in touch, and on which the player, or carillonneur, can play a broad range of music—from arrangements of popular and classical music to original compositions created just for the carillon.

The carillon at Princeton University in Cleveland Tower contains 67 bells, concert pitch. The largest bell, the Bourdon sounding G below middle C, weighs 12,880 pounds. The smallest bell weighs 14 pounds.

See, hear, experience the carillon bells every Sunday at 1 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. (Except during July and August, during exams, and major holidays.)
