Lift Every Voice: Carillon Music by Black Composers

  1. Monday January 21 12:00pm
  2. Monday January 21 1:30pm
Burton Memorial Tower

Dr. Tiffany Ng, University Carillonist, gives the world premiere of "Nut" by Trevor Weston, Professor of Music at Drew University. The Detroit Free Press calls Weston's music a “gently syncopated marriage of intellect and feeling.” The program will also include works by Jessie Montgomery, Betty Jackson King, and Jalalu-Kalvert Nelson, and transcriptions of jazz and gospel songs.

Burton Memorial Tower: The public is welcome to visit the belfry by taking the elevator to the 8th floor and then the stairs to the 10th floor. Warm clothing is advised. An ADA-accessible, family-friendly simulcast will take place on the 8th floor, where visitors with mobility limitations can also see the practice keyboard.

Lurie Tower: The public is welcome inside the 3rd-floor belfry during the concert and afterwards for Q&A. The carillon is ADA-accessible. Warm clothing is advised.
