Springfield's Carillon Has New Bell Ringer


Springfield’s world-famous carillon has someone new ringing the bells, for only the third time in its 51-year history.

 

Robin Austin has been hired as the carillonneur for the Rees Memorial Carillon at Washington Park.

 

Austin says he will increase the free weekly concerts at the 130-foot high bell tower, and will also increase educational opportunities, teaching local people how to play the carillon.

 

Only two other people have been full-time carillonneurs there, Raymond Keldermans, who started when it opened in 1961, and his son Karl, who served from 1976 until his retirement late last year.
