[pbs_component_photo image_id=”5145″]

The carillon program at Berkeley has several constituent parts. The most prominent part is, of course, performance, with thrice daily performances on the carillon an integral part of campus life. There is also an extensive instructional program and, under the umbrella of the Berkeley Carillon Institute, a library of photographs, music, manuscripts, books and articles, and the publication of carillon music. Berkeley carillon students have also formed the Berkeley Carillon Guild, funded through the ASUC, which provides substantial campus outreach, including the DeCal class “Learning to Play the Sather Tower Carillon.”
