Last year's City Wide Hymn Fest brought over 500 people to the Carillon grounds to partake in the festivities. We have paired musical guests who will play along with the Carillonist.
Trumpeters will be playing along with several hymns, while stationed at the 8th floor of the tower. The Trinity Summer Band under the direction of Jan Zepp will be providing appropriate interludes, while JB George will be leading the City Wide Hymn Fest.
The audience will be welcomed with carillon music as of 3PM. Festivities to kick-off at 3:30pm. Please bring lawn chairs and/or blankets. Again, this event is free to the public.
