Weekday Carillon Recitals

David Christensen, University Carillonneur, continues the tradition of weekday concerts played on UCR's magnificent 48-bell carillon, a musical instrument housed inside the Bell Tower. The cast-bronze, cup-shaped bells are arranged chromatically and precisely tuned so that several bells can be sounded harmoniously together. The bells are sounded by striking a series of wooden levers with the side of the hand or fingers and with the feet.

To view a selection of carillon performances, go to the YouTube website and type "UCR carillon" into the search box.
