Refurbished carillon bells chime for Baccalaureate Celebration



The return of the newly restored carillon to the top of Hoover Tower means the resumption of a 60-year tradition of serenading new graduates with the pealing of thousand-pound bronze bells. Timothy Zerlang, a lecturer in the Department of Music and the university carillonneur since 1991, demonstrates the restored carillon and discusses its features as he plays before the university's Baccalaureate Celebration on Saturday, June 15.
