Wellesley College will open up its 32-bell carillon to the community on Saturday, February 23, 2pm – 4pm. The carillon is housed in Galen Stone Tower, which rises 182 feet from the ground in Green Hall. The bells were installed in 1931 and the college’s Guild of Carillonneurs ring them throughout the year.
The performance is open the public and will include pop and movie music in honor of the Oscars, which will be awarded on February 24th to Hollywood’s stars both on the screen and behind the scenes. We’re hoping the bells will chime out Lady Gaga’s “Shallow,” which is up for an Oscar in the Original Song category, or something from Bohemian Rhapsody, in the running for a Sound Editing award.
