Montessori High School at University Circle Visits the Tower

Nearly twenty French students from the Montessori High School at University Circle brought their lunches over from Magnolia Dr. to the Lunchtime Carillon Concert on Friday, Sept. 25. They all climbed the tower to the clavier level to see the instrument prior to the concert, some staying to enjoy the view and the breeze from the 80-some-foot-high balcony while listening to the music. Afterward, University Circle Carillonneur George Leggiero taught them about carillons in France and French Canada. Many thanks to Montessori's French and physical education teacher, Nancy Smekal, for arranging this special educational event (with a little cardio as well!).
