Wichita will have more opportunities to enjoy a concert on the new carillon installed in the clock tower at 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 the day of the performance between noon and 1 p.m.
This is a fun experience! The best place to listen will be from outside the museum. The new carillon is located on the museum’s 5th floor, away from public view.
Here are the dates for the 2021 performances:
- Friday, April 2
- Friday, May 28
- Friday, July 2
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 concert is one of eight Bloomfield Trust Carillon Concerts performed annually.
Here’s some more information about the Bloomfield Carillon from Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum:
A new carillon was recently installed as a gift to the City of Wichita through The Arts Council from the Sam and Rie Bloomfield Foundation and a private donors’ group led by Eric Engstrom and Robert Bell, including Paul and Phyllis Buchanan, Michael Easton, Jerry Martin, Bill and Mary Lynn Oliver, and the Ross Foundation, Hal Ross, trustee. The new carillon, replacing the carillon that failed in 2018, continues the Bloomfield Foundation tradition of providing music for Downtown Wichita for over half a century.
