About the Congress
This year’s congress opened with a host recital on June 15 in the Jane A. Meyer carillon, a 48-bell Eijsbouts instrument that sits centrally on campus as part of the Duane G. Meyer Library tower.
Over the four-day event, artists like Malgosia Fiebig (Utrecht), Ed Nassor (National Cathedral), Jeremy Chesman (Missouri State) and Joey Brink (Winner of the Fabiola Competition) will be performing in the tower for all campus visitors to enjoy. There are also presentations being held in the library on topics useful to carillonists of all levels.
