Hitting a High Note: SLU's Musical Tower

Bells have a long and distinguished past. Today the music of the carillon rings from belfries around the world, especially during the Holidays. You'll find them in city halls, churches and on college campuses. For nearly 80 years, music from a set of bells in St. Lawrence University's chapel has been a weekday tradition. The Bacheller Memorial Chimes in Gunnison Chapel are played, by hand, five days a week and for special occasions. Todd Moe visited the school's belltower for an up-close concert.  Go to full article
