For seventy 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 Wednesday evening concerts begin on July 5th with newcomer Laura Ellis from the University of Florida in Gainesville. On July 12th we welcome the “Bel Ensemble” Carillon Duo, husband-and-wife carillonneurs Richard de Waardt from The Netherlands and Dina Verheyden from Belgium. There will be two more American carillonneurs performing here for the first time and three returning favorites. And the ever popular Irish Thunder Pipes & Drums is scheduled to perform for us again on August 23rd. All Wednesday evening concerts are played rain or shine.

The Chapel will continue our Sunday afternoon carillon playings in the Spring and Fall. These 20-minute concerts will be performed live at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m., weather permitting. Spring playings are in April, May, and June. Fall playings will be in September, October, and November.
