2010 Judson Maynard Summer Carillon Series

The Texas Tech University School of Music announces the Summer Carillon Recital Series featuring the refurbished Baird Memorial Carillon located in the west bell tower of the Administration Building. A carillon concert will take place every Sunday at 8 p.m. from June 6 to Aug. 1. In conjunction with the Fourth on Broadway celebration, a special concert will be held at 9 a.m. July 3. The programs are 40 to 45 minutes long and include popular songs, classical, folk music, hymns, songs for children and original compositions for the carillon. Roy Wilson, adjunct professor of organ and carillon, invites families and children to bring their lawn chairs and picnic blankets to listen from Memorial Circle, north of the Administration Building.  Carillonneurs presently scheduled to play this summer are Judson D. Maynard, a Texas Tech emeritus professor of organ and carillon from Denton; Roy Wilson, orchestra director for Lubbock Independent School District, organist at St. John’s United Methodist Church and adjunct professor of carillon and organ at Texas Tech; William Balch, a music education major and violinist; Cole Shooter, a political science graduate and music minor from Texas Tech; Arla Jo Anderton, a past president of The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America and science teacher at Coronado High School in Lubbock; Denise Koncelik, a flute instructor at Midwestern State University; and Jim Quashnock, a biologist, chemist and church organist from Wichita Falls. During Roy Wilson’s performance, patrons are invited to come up into the west tower of the Administration Building and quietly observe the performance, the unusual playing clavier and the 43 chromatic bells. If another is performing, the bells will be demonstrated after the performance and patrons are invited to feel the different weights of the clappers. The following are summer performance dates:
