Summer Carillon Concert: Deborah Hennig

Summer Carillon Concert: Deborah Hennig

Canadian carillonist Deborah Hennig performs her arrangements of works by Agustín Barrios Mangoré and R. Nathaniel Dett in a program exploring British, German, Spanish, and Canadian music. Hennig has a background as a classical pianist and graduated with high distinction from the Royal Carillon School 'Jef Denyn' in Belgium. She has performed throughout Belgium, the Netherlands, and North America, and currently plays special concerts at St. George’s Anglican Church in Guelph, Ontario, where she is helping the church expand its carillon program. Deborah enjoyed a long professional career in arts administration, serving as marketing and communications director for performing arts organizations across Canada and in Hong Kong.

Summer carillon concerts are free and open to all, including to families and their pets. The music happens rain or shine. Please note that concerts are scheduled on both Central and North Campus, so plan your commute accordingly. When you arrive, take a program from the stand near the tower and have a seat outdoors wherever you like, or bring your own lawn chair or blanket (even your own picnic!). Concert staff wearing nametags will be available to answer questions or direct you to accessible restrooms and other facilities. For best acoustics, sit far enough away from the tower to have a direct line of sight to the bells.

Metered visitor parking behind the Walgreen Drama Center is limited due to construction. Additional street parking along Bonisteel Blvd. is available after business hours, and metered visitor parking is available by the E.V. Moore Building (lot NC10), the North Campus Recreation Building (lot NC44), and the Art & Architecture Building (lot NC43).
