Summer Carillon Recital

Sunday, August 13, 2017 - 13:00 to 15:00
Storke Plaza
UCSB Carillonist Margo Halsted will present a recital on Sunday, August 13, 2017 from 1-3 p.m. at Storke Tower on the UCSB campus. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. About the Storke Tower Carillon UCSB's Storke Tower and its carillon were a gift from Thomas Storke, former publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press. The instrument consists of 61 bells cast by Petit & Fritsen of the Netherlands, with the bells weighing from 18 pounds to 2.5 tons, and spanning five octaves. The UCSB carillon is a much larger modern copy of historical instruments that were invented approximately 500 years ago in the Low Countries of Europe. A carillon is played with the fists and feet, and the action is completely mechanical. To vary the dynamics of the music, the performer must strike the key harder or use a lighter touch, much like a piano.
