Carillon concerts on the hill

The landmark 120-foot WWII Memorial Campanile, home to a fine carillon of bells, can be seen from much of town. It is lovely to walk through the hillside groves or sit beside the lake in the campanile's shadow, especially during one of the regular carillon concerts on many Sunday afternoons and Wednesday early evenings.

To confirm recital times ring the Department of Music & Dance at the University of Kansas on 785/864-3436.
