Lurie Carillon bells lined up

SMTD presents a special concert on the North Campus bell tower, highlighting the actions Martin Luther King invoked during his “I Have A Dream” speech.

I. “To Pray Together”
Precious Lord
He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands
There Is A Balm In Gilead

II. “To Struggle Together”
Freedom Is A Constant Struggle
Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me ‘Round
We Shall Overcome

III. “To Stand Up For Freedom Together”
Woke Up This Morning With My Mind On Freedom
Change Is Gonna Come
Lift Every Voice and Sing

Carson Landry, Prof. Jessi Grieser, and Meghan Wysocki perform. The bells can be heard throughout the North Campus Grove. Lurie Tower will be open via elevator throughout the concert (hearing protection encouraged), as well as for a demonstration and Q&A.

This performance was originally scheduled for MLK Day 2024.
Thirty-minute recitals are performed on the Lurie Carillon every weekday that classes are in session. During these recitals, visitors may take the elevator to level 2 to view the largest bells, or to level 3 to see the carillonist performing. (Visitors subject to acrophobia are recommended to visit level 2 only.) An optional spiral stairway between levels 2 and 3 allows for up-close views of some of the largest bells.
