Event description

Description

Join us for a private tour and concert of Yale's Harkness Bell Tower! Two members of the Guild of Carillonneurs will be giving us a private tour of the Yale Memorial Carillion, a musical instrument composed of at least 23 bells, tuned in chromatic sequence. The Guild is the student organization responsible for ringing the bells in Harkness Tower. Each fall, the current members give lessons to freshmen and sophomores (and sometimes graduate students) on the practice carillon, and will sometimes even take song requests.

The tour will last about 20 minutes and the concert will last about an hour. This event is open to the Yale Community, but spaces are very limited so everyone must register.
