Welcome to our 62nd year of Summer Wednesday Evening Carillon Concerts. 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 series starts on July 2nd with returning favorite Steven Ball, Freelance Carillonneur from Atlantic City, New Jersey. My performance follows on July 9th. On July 16th we welcome Tim Sleep, City Carillonneur at the Millennium Carillon, Naperville, Illinois, for his first concert at Valley Forge. Two more returning favorites finish out July: James Fackenthal, Assistant University Carillonneur at the University of Chicago, Illinois (July 23rd), and Ray McLellan, University Carillonneur at Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan (July 30th).
