Bells are repaired

Six bells of the carillon have not been ringing due to storm damage late this summer. With these bells placed on the outer edge of the framework, a large crane was needed for the Verdin Bell Company technicians to reach them. This work was completed on Nov. 12 – 13. Now the full carillon of 4 octaves is in great condition and ready for the holidays.

Bill Monroe continues to change out the music for carillon to play digitally with several songs after each hour. The Westminister Chimes also play each quarter hour and ring out the hour.
