Wellesley: A History
An Open Tower Event from the Guild of Carillonneurs
Saturday, April 4, 2015 - 2:00pmAcademic Quad Green, Galen Stone Tower
The bells in Galen Stone Tower represent a pillar of Wellesley history. In a celebration of this history, join the Guild of Carillonneurs for an open tower featuring the music of Wellesley's past and present!
The Guild of Carillonneurs welcomes several professional carillonneurs in our annual Spring Concert.
The carillon, commonly known as "the bells," is the largest musical instrument in the world. Wellesley's is one of fewer than 200 in the United States, and one of only a few in the country played by students. The Guild of Carillonneurs plays around 200 concerts a year, so while those within earshot of Galen Stone Tower may enjoy the music often, its other concerts are times that one may plan ahead to find a favorite spot on campus and take in a performance. The Guild of Carillonneurs is a Music Department Ensemble program.
