Emerging Detroit performer Dr. Christine El-Hage Walters, who recently graduated from U-M with a Doctor of Musical Arts in Sacred Music, is known for her carillon arrangements of songs by beloved Lebanese singer Fairuz. Christine has been teaching Elementary General Music in the Dearborn Public Schools district since 2017. She was lead organist and choir director at Allen Park Presbyterian Church for over 17 years, and is now organist and choir accompanist at Assumption Grotto Catholic Church in Detroit. She serves as a board member on the Detroit chapter of the American Guild of Organists.

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.

The nearest municipal parking structures are at 324 Maynard and at 510 E Washington. Street parking may be limited during construction in the vicinity.
