The Berkeley Carillon Guild is a student organized and run guild of players of the Berkeley Carillon. The guild consists of present and former students, townspeople and the professional staff of the carillon.

, open to all university students.

The guild provides outreach to the campus community through a variety of other means, and has a brochure and a T-shirt available.

In October of 2008 members of the guild visited the Stanford Carillon, where Tim Zerlang, Stanford’s carillonneur, hosted us with a talk on the carillon, Hoover tower, and the automatic playing drum, as well as letting us play the newly enlarged and renovated instrument.
