2017 Carillon Schedule
For sixty-four years, Washington Memorial Chapel has presented the world’s finest carillonneurs. This magnificent music in the pastoral setting of Valley Forge National Historical Park continues to be a source of great enjoyment and inspiration for area residents and visitors from all over the world.
Our annual July-August Wednesday evening concerts feature performers from all over the USA, including one Russian-born carillonneur. As always, we welcome some carillonneurs new to Valley Forge, as well as welcoming back returning favorites. And the ever popular Irish Thunder Pipes & Drums performs again on August 16th (Music of the British Isles). All Wednesday evening concerts are played rain or shine.
I am pleased to announce that the Chapel will continue and expand our Sunday Afternoon Carillon Playings. Each Sunday in April, May, June, and now in September, October, and November, 20-minute concerts will be performed live at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m., weather permitting.
