Sunday Carillon Concerts begin their 2015 summer season on May 24 and continue through the month of September. The carillon cottage is in the beautiful Nan Elliott Rose Garden at Gordon F. Moore Community Park, Rt. 140 in Alton.
Each Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m., local musicians present a free program to concert-goers who are seated on lawn chairs, benches, or in their vehicles. The performers create their own program. Some choose a theme, such as songs about love, angels, Broadway show tunes, while others do a variety of their favorite music.
The public is invited to come and enjoy a walk through the rose garden and listen to the beautiful music of the carillon. All concerts are free. Bring your own lawn chair. For more information, call the Alton Park and Recreation Department at 618-463-3580.
