David Christensen has been University Carillonneur at UC Riverside for 31 years and plays regular weekly concerts throughout the school year.  He has performed at many carillons throughout the United States and Canada, including the University of Michigan, University of Toronto, UC Santa Barbara, University of Chicago, Longwood Gardens, and Princeton University. Mr. Christensen also gives instruction in carillon and organ to UCR students.  Several compositions for organ are published by the Kenwood Press and arrangements for carillon are published by the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America.

About the carillon
Housed in the bell tower, the carillon is a musical instrument comprised of 48 magnificent cast-bronze, cup-shaped bells. The bells are arranged chromatically and precisely tuned so that several can be sounded harmoniously together. The bells are sounded by striking a series of wooden levers with the side of the hand or fingers and with the feet.

Parking: Complimentary permits available at the Kiosk.
