On Saturday, May 11, 2019, Wichita will have an opportunity to listen to the new carillon in the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum.
All you need to do to hear the Carillon concert is be in the vicinity of the museum’s clock tower on Saturday at 2 p.m.
The new carillon is located on the museum’s 5th floor, away from public view.
The best place to listen will be from outside the museum.
The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum is located at 204 S. Main Street in downtown Wichita. There’s plenty of parking around there, either in the lot next to Century II, the parking lot in the neighboring WaterWalk plaza, or along William Street next to the museum.
This inaugural concert commemorates the 100th Anniversary of Wichita’s decorative World War I Victory Arch and Victory parade held on May 9, 1919, and will consist of the best loved songs of the WWI era. Lynne Davis, Robert L. Town Distinguished Professor of Organ at Wichita State University, will be performing on the carillon.
This concert is one of eight Bloomfield Trust Carillon Concerts performed annually.
