As the McGaffin Carillon approaches its 50th anniversary, we're planning for the future. The bells have provided a soundscape for University Circle since 1968. As an Educational, Cultural and Medical hub of Cleveland, literally thousands of people are within earshot of the bells. The bells have pealed for weddings, graduations and other celebrations. The bells have also tolled at memorials of those who have passed. Tunes have enhanced holidays and brought smiles to the students and visitors to the area.

A group has been formed to plot future activities for the carillon's next fifty years. We'd like to hear it more often, even daily. We would also like to invite recitalists from American and European carillons. Stay tuned.
