Carillonneurs Performance for Tanner

The Wellesley College Guild of Carillonneurs is a student-run organization whose members provide the music of the bells on campus. Active members of the Guild receive lessons, play in masterclasses, and perform regularly on the carillon during the school year. The Guild also hosts open tower events and concerts open to the entire Wellesley community.

Housing 32 bells, the Wellesley carillon was installed in Galen Stone Tower above Green Hall in 1931. The tower is 182 feet tall from the ground to its highest finial. Aside from a few years during World War II, the carillon has been played by Wellesley students since its installation.
