Carillon Concert in Valley Forge Park

May 26, 2017

This holiday weekend, celebrate Memorial Day with the magnificent sounds of the Carillon during a special outdoor concert at the Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge starting at 2 PM.

The Chapel’s Carillon, which is an extraordinary instrument housed in a 112-foot-tall building that is dubbed the “National Patriots Tower,” comprises 58 bells, each tuned to a specific note. Played by a master musician, its gorgeous sound adds a vibrant extra dimension to the Washington Memorial Chapel experience.

The Memorial Day holiday repertoire, Gefvert promises, will be a mix of well-known patriotic compositions and other music appropriate for the day, all arranged for the Carillon’s unique characteristics.
