The Guild of Student Carillonneurs is a select group of students dedicated to carrying on the tradition of playing the Kniker Carillon, commonly known as the “Tower Bells” on the UT Austin campus. The guild performs weekly mini-concerts throughout the school year, as well as various full concerts and individual recitals. I’d heard people talk about how they wished they could hear music that they knew coming from the Tower, not just, as one student put it, “clangy bell music”. I thought about it and decided what music would better bring together an entire 50,000+ student body better than Disney?! I talked it over with my superiors, and they were all for it; thus, the UT Disney Carillon Concert was scheduled and ready to go! I’ve spent the past three months getting ready, so I’m hoping people are pleased.

See y’all Saturday! (Just for the record, the Malls by the Main Building are the best listening spots).
