Carillon Festival - Stratford Summer Music
Event Date: Sunday Aug. 13th, 2017
Event Time: 1:15 pm - 1:45 pm
Host: Stratford Summer Music
To mark the opening of Stratford’s Sesquicentennial project - Market Square behind City Hall - Stratford Summer Music is proud to bring to the Square the Chime Master Mobile Millennium Carillon, a 13-ton, mobile instrument with 48 bells over four octaves, played manually from an organ style keyboard.
This Mobile Carillon is the largest of three carillon instruments currently touring North America; it brings the carillon, traditionally a tower instrument, down to ground level where sensations of seeing the carillonneur play, hearing the bells and feeling the vibration of sound blend into a unique and dynamic musical experience. The music of the Mobile Carillon will ring through Stratford’s City Centre as a unique experience to help inaugurate the 2017 season of this new civic site.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
Location: Market Square, Stratford, Ontario, 1 Wellington Street, Stratford
