CLASSICAL | University of Rochester Carillon 

One of Rochester's essential summer sounds is the University of Rochester's Hopeman Memorial Carillon, which has pealed out from the top of Rush Rhees Library for the last 42 years. (The 50 hand-cast bronze bells came from the Netherlands, and replaced the original bells from 1930.) When it's not striking the hours, it is playing real tunes as well as classical and modern compositions; a devoted group of amateur and professional carillonneurs sends those sonorous tones across the UR campus and into the surrounding community.

The Hopeman Carillon concert series, a UR summer fixture, winds up its July series next Monday, July 27, with a performance by Sue Bergren, an organist and carillonneur from Indiana. You can look into the Hopeman Carillon's restoration project at Rochester.edu/aboutus/carillon, and learn its history at a Rush Rhees Library exhibit, "Chime to Carillon", running to the end of July.

Hopeman Carillon Concert featuring Sue Bergren will take place Monday, July 27, on the University of Rochester Eastman Quadrangle. 7 p.m. Free. 275-2828, Rochester.edu/about us/carillon.
