February 2021 GCD Social
Choice Morsels: Janet Tebbel, carillonneur
All carillon playings, programs, events are posted on Facebook (for First United Methodist Church of Germantown only). We present a summer recital series during the month of July with professional carillonneurs from around the world. Monday evenings at 7:30. The church is at 6001 Germantown Ave, we listen from the garden of Wyck (historic house) at 6026 Germantown Ave or elsewhere in the neighborhood. Freewill donation.
YouTube people to explore: Geert D'hollander (Bok Tower Gardens FL), Boudewijn Zwart, Frank Steijns
Beware of carillon imitations with speakers and automatic players which have no dynamic control.
Instruments with less than 23 bells (2 octaves) are called chimes. Swinging bells in England (and some in North America) are "change ringing."
Social time after the program
There was a discussion of games and movies, and we were asked to share favorites mentioned.
