Carillon Concert Program with Notes:

Concert program Download Program

This program was designed to offer you a variety of music written especially for the carillon. Some of the pieces are original and others are arrangements written by carillonneurs to be played by all of us. You will note my favorite composers—Ronald Barnes, exceptional performer and composer, wrote original pieces for the instrument and made wonderful arrangements of previously written music; Milford Myhre was for many years the carillonneur at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida. His approach to music and to the carillon is from the most lyrical style possible and, therefore, his music is always accessible to every audience. The "Three Designs" are without title and will be played with a slight pause between each one. Sally Slade Warner left many fine arrangements of well-known music as her legacy to the carillon world. John Courter was a colleague of mine while I was studying at the carillon school in the Netherlands. His writing is always lyrical, intellectually conceived, musically correct and often with a bit of humor included as in the "Kortjake"!! Alice Gomez is a friend who resides, writes and teaches in San Antonio Texas. Her orchestral works, solo pieces for other instruments and now a series of pieces for the carillon are all representative of her fine scholarship. I have tried to include something for everyone. Enjoy!!! —JVW
