A Summer of Bells

augustus 20, 2017

This summer led me to Spain and Germany where I could play the carillon. Special too was the chance to play the carillon of the Westertoren in Amsterdam. I entered a course by the Yale University to think about the role and function of the carillonneur in modern society. In September I will play a carillon concert in Kaunas – Lithuania. In this blog I selected some photos of this wonderful musical summer
