The recital is in remembrance of William Reynolds, former Chair of the UCR Music Department, and musical advisor in the acquisition of the carillon which is enjoyed throughout the year by the UCR community. This is an opportunity to enjoy the sounds of the season while relaxing in the pastorale atmosphere of the UCR campus.
David Christensen has been University Carillonneur at UC Riverside for 31 years and plays regular weekly concerts throughout the school year. He has performed at many carillons throughout the United States and Canada, including the University of Michigan, University of Toronto, UC Santa Barbara, University of Chicago, Longwood Gardens, and Princeton University. Mr. Christensen also gives instruction in carillon and organ to UCR students. Several compositions for organ are published by the Kenwood Press.
About the carillon
Housed in the bell tower, the carillon is a musical instrument comprised of 48 magnificent cast-bronze, cup-shaped bells. The bells are arranged chromatically and precisely tuned so that several 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.
Free and open to the public
Parking: Complimentary permits available at the Kiosk.
