Middlebury College bells will sing this summer

MIDDLEBURY — The beautiful sounds of ringing bells will fill the air again this summer, as the 28th annual Middlebury College Carillon Series treats audiences to free performances on Friday evenings at 5 p.m. in and around Mead Memorial Chapel. Each year, musicians from around the world come to Middlebury to perform in the chapel’s soaring tower high above the college campus. All of the concerts are free and open to the public, and can be enjoyed inside Mead Chapel or on the surrounding lawns.
Organized by Middlebury College Organist and Professor Emeritus of Music Emory Fanning and Middlebury College Carillonneur George Matthew Jr., this year’s impressive lineup includes seven carillon concerts and a special “Carillon Series Extra” organ concert. Concerts are as follows:

In the case of inclement weather, the concerts will still take place, and audiences are welcome to listen from inside the chapel or on the chapel steps and front landing.
