University Carillonist Tiffany Ng performs the North American premiere of Otsi’tsist√≥:sera (Planting Songs) for carillon by Grammy-nominated composer Dawn Avery, of Mohawk descent, and music by Native American Music Awards winner Connor Chee. The belfry is open to visitors during the concert.

The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Carillon is an instrument of 60 bells with the lowest bell (bourdon) weighing 6 tons. 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.
