About Carillon

Carillon Handbell Choir

Founded in 1985 by Dr. Larry D. Smith, Carillon consists of 10 to 14 ringers selected annually by campus-wide auditions. The ensemble performs 20 to 25 concerts annually for local to international audiences.

Carillon plays on six octaves of Schulmerich handbells and five octaves of Schulmerich tone chimes. Carillon owns C2 and F2 bells and is grateful to Schulmerich Carillons Inc. for the loan of the five additional seventh-octave bass bells and four upper-seventh-octave bells for their tours.
