The Carillon Concert was wonderful! Thank you Andrea!

The Peace Tower, home of Ottawa's 53 bell Carillon

Another fun trip up the Tower for a very special Carillon Concert. This time, our Dominion Carillonneur, Andrea McCrady,  treated me with a program all my own!

about 183 steps to the Carillon keyboard room
The elevator was out of service, so we all huffed and puffed our way up to the keyboard room.

As Holly mentioned in the post announcing this upcoming concert, Dr. McCrady is gratified that she has found a composer "in her own backyard" whose compositions and arrangements seem so fitting to the requirements of the Carillon.

She played my Stairwell Carol so beautifully! Here it is! Enjoy! Concert date was Noon, Monday, December 12th, 2016.

Here's an article by the Toronto star about Andrea and her "high-level" (pun intended) job.

Ciao, Pierre
