Dutch carillonist and organist Gijsbert Kok performs new carillon music by South Korean composer Il Hoon Son, Indonesian-Dutch composer Sinta Wullur, and Dutch composer Roel van Oosten in a program that spans arrangements from Bach to Piazzolla. Kok is city carillonist of The Hague, Scheveningen, and Voorschoten, organist of the Abdijkerk in The Hague – Loosduinen, and instructor of music theory at the Codarts Conservatory in Rotterdam.

Summer carillon concerts are free and open to all, including to families and their pets. The music happens rain or shine. Please note that concerts are scheduled on both Central and North Campus, so plan your commute accordingly. When you arrive, take a program from the stand near the tower and have a seat outdoors wherever you like, or bring your own lawn chair or blanket (even your own picnic!). Concert staff wearing nametags will be available to answer questions or direct you to accessible restrooms and other facilities. For best acoustics, sit far enough away from the tower to have a direct line of sight to the bells.

Metered visitor parking behind the Walgreen Drama Center is limited due to construction. Additional street parking along Bonisteel Blvd. is available after business hours, and metered visitor parking is available by the E.V. Moore Building (lot NC10), the North Campus Recreation Building (lot NC44), and the Art & Architecture Building (lot NC43).
