Calgary Carillon Celebration

Neil Cockburn


Hear a stunning carillon song ring through the streets of downtown.

Every weekday at noon, the Calgary Tower's carillon - a unique keyboard instrument - sends bell voices soaring across the tips of downtown skyscrapers.

This January, the noontime chimes will be given new voice with a special selection of dance music from across the globe in traditional, folk and modern styles, curated and performed by international prize-winning organist Neil Cockburn, Head of Organ Studies at Mount Royal University.
