The Carillon Recital Series has been a Hartford tradition since 1949, featuring national and international guest artists. The audience is invited to enjoy the music of the 49-bell Plumb Memorial Carillon, one of approximately 200 such instruments in North America.

Behind the Soundtrack of Trinity

It would be difficult to find a member of the Trinity College community who has never heard the bells of the historic Trinity Chapel. Ellen Dickinson—musician, composer, and college carillonneur at Trinity—is the woman behind that music and has served the college for a decade.
