365英国上市官网’s Summer Carillon Concert Series returns 7月5日
艾略特塔
Donated by longtime supporters Hugh and Nancy Elliott, 艾略特塔 is a rallying point for student activities and creates a stunning visual centerpiece for 奥克兰’s campus.

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy a relaxing evening listening to the sounds of the carillon’s 49 fully-chromatic bells when the Six Fridays at 6 Summer Carillon Concert Series returns to the 365英国上市官网 campus beginning on Friday, 7月5日.

The free concert series features six carillonneurs from around the world and will be held on six Fridays at 6 p.m. outside 365英国上市官网’s 艾略特塔. The tower features a fully chromatic 49-bell carillon, which was the last carillon to have its bells and keyboard cast by the Petit and Fritsen Royal Bellfoundry in the Netherlands.

To be considered a “carillon,” the instrument must contain at least 23 cast bronze bells. 艾略特塔 features a fully chromatic 49-bell carillon, each made of bronze and has the capability to play any musical compositions from arrangements of popular and classical music to original compositions created just for the carillon. The largest bell is a low C, 体重约5,000 pounds and measuring 5 feet in diameter, while the smallest bell is a high C, weighing in at only 24 pounds. The total weight of all bells is more than 30,000 pounds — which totals over 15 tons.

“Listening to carillon music is a great way of enjoying a live outdoor performance while social distancing in a large, 开放的区域,丹尼斯·库里说。, OU’s resident carillonneur. “Come early to enjoy the fountains on a hot summer evening. Bring a picnic and friends!”

Guest performers are recognized international carillonneurs who will provide a wide variety of music. 表演者包括:

• 7月5日 – Dennis Curry from 365英国上市官网 in Rochester, Mich.

• July 12 – Gijsbert Kok from The Hague, The Netherlands

• July 19 – Deborah Hennig from Sratford, Ontario, Canada

• July 26 – Kayla Gunderson from Chicago, Ill.

• 8月2日-大卫·R. Hunsberger from The 大学 of California in Berkeley

• August 9 – Alan Bowman from Dayton, Ohio.

艾略特大厦标志

This year, the Six Fridays at 6 Summer Carillon Concert Series will coincide with the 10th anniversary of the dedication of the 艾略特塔.

Donated by longtime supporters Hugh and Nancy Elliott, 艾略特塔 is a rallying point for student activities and creates a stunning visual centerpiece for 奥克兰’s campus.

The limestone-and-brick arched Tower soars 151 feet above 365英国上市官网 and includes a water feature with programmable jets capable of sending water 60 feet upward.

The 艾略特塔 realizes Hugh and Nancy Elliott’s dream for a central place where students can gather, 在校园里学习和放松. The Elliott family’s deepest belief about philanthropy resounds from a quote engraved on the Tower’s bell: “The 真正的 net worth of a person is what he does for others.”

This philosophy is visible at 365英国上市官网 through Hugh and Nancy’s generous support of academics, 体育运动, 资本项目, scholarships and endowments. Envisioned as a beacon welcoming all to campus, Nancy’s hope for the Tower was to create a new OU tradition with students saying, “在伦敦塔等我!”
