The Graduate School at Princeton University invites the public to a free carillon concert and reception, Sunday, Aug. 27 at 1 p.m. in celebration of the Graduate School's Centennial.
The performance, at Cleveland Tower of the Graduate College, will feature Dr. Scott B. Parry playing works by Bach, Handel, Mozart, Bizet, Beethoven and Schubert. The Graduate College is off Springdale and College Roads in Princeton.
Parry, a Princeton resident and Princeton University alumnus from the Class of 1954, studied with the University's first carillonneur, Professor Arthur Bigelow. He has performed on more than 50 carillons in nine countries and has led handbell groups throughout the northeast.
The concert is one of many programs and lectures throughout 2000 and 2001 that will honor the 100th anniversary of the Graduate School. The events will offer "an opportunity to celebrate the School's distinguished history, the contributions of its alumni to scholarship and research, education, public policy and industry, and the School's contributions to Princeton's teaching and research programs," said University President Harold T. Shapiro, a Graduate School alumnus.
