Carillon Provides Summer Entertainment At Norwich University

A series of free, outdoor carillon concerts will take place this summer on the campus of Norwich University in Northfield.

Carilloner George Matthew says the Norwich carillon was originally used at the 1929 Chicago  World's Fair.

Matthew says the carillon has a rich history, and while it is related to the piano, he actually considers it  to be a percussion instrument.

A series of six free carillon concerts will kick off this Saturday at 1.
