For sixty-two years, we have 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 series starts on July 1st with my performance. On July 8th we welcome Koen Cosaert, Director of the Royal Carillon School ‘Jef Denyn’ in Mechelen, Belgium, and Carillonneur at St. Martinschurch, Kortrijk; St. Michaelschurch, Roeselare; St. Salvatorchurch, Harelbeke; and St. Hiloniuschurch, Izegem; Belgium. Three more newcomers to Valley Forge follow: Leonard Weiss, Carillonneur from Canberra, Australia (July 15th); Roy Derk Kroezen, Carillonneur at Peperbus Tower, Zwolle; St. Eusebius Church, Arnhem; and Hoogeveen Town Hall; The Netherlands (July 22nd), and Hunter Chase, Carillonneur from the University of Chicago, Illinois (July 29th). On August 5th we welcome back Margaret Pan, Carillonneur from Toronto, Canada. The ever popular Irish Thunder Pipes & Drums returns on August 12th (Music of the British Isles). Two more performers new to Valley Forge finish out our 2015 series: Jesse Ratcliffe, Carillonneur, Luray Singing Tower, Luray, Virginia (August 19th) and Ellen Dickinson, Carillonneur, Yale University, New Haven and Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut (August 26th).
