Carillon concert series continues through Aug. 31

Princeton's 11th annual Summer Carillon Series, which began June 22, continues each Sunday through Aug. 31 at Cleveland Tower on the Graduate College campus.

The 1 p.m. concerts feature acclaimed guest carillonneurs from across the nation and Europe. They perform on the University's renowned Class of 1892 Bells , the fifth largest carillon in the country and one of the top ten in size worldwide. These musicians of exceptional talent and passion represent diverse backgrounds from full-time recitalists to weekend performers, including a family physician, a retired corporate executive, a cancer researcher, a Yale University political science student and a psychologist and book author who is also a Princeton alumnus.

"While our backgrounds are often quite different, carillonneurs share a love for bells and the carillon's extraordinary 500-year history," said Princeton University Carillonneur Robin Austin. "Our guest carillonneurs always respond enthusiastically to our invitation to perform in the series because of Princeton's stature as the owner of one of the world's largest and finest carillons."

A list of dates and featured performers is available on the Web . More information also is available in a news release .
