Have you ever wondered about the beautiful music that comes from Trinity’s Carillon tower?

Trinity’s carillon was installed in 1928, a gift from the Horace A. Moses family. The 100-foot Chapel tower houses 60 bells, covering a range of 4 octaves. The largest bell is 6 feet in diameter and weighs almost 8000 pounds. The smallest is 7 inches and weighs 14 pounds.

The bells are bolted to steel beams and only the clappers move. Carillon bells have no dampers so once they are struck, they ring until the sound dies away naturally. The bells are played manually from a keyboard located in the tower room. This keyboard consists of a double row of wooden levers that correspond to the black and white keys on a piano. The keys are connected to the bell clappers by wires. The amount of force used to strike the clappers determines the amount of sound produced.

 

Please join us on the following dates to enjoy this beautiful music.
