Area residents have an opportunity to take in a concert every Sunday night through the end of September with the Nan Elliott Memorial Rose Garden as a backdrop. The Carillon Concert Series hosted by Alton Park & Recreation recently kicked off for the 2012 season. Tomorrow, Ray Bentley will be featured from 5-5:30pm.
As for the backdrop of the Rose Garden, Alton Park & Recreation's Rhonda Lewis says it is spectacular as usual.
Joel Anderson is the city's Rosarian, and spends much of his time tending to the garden. Back to the music, the musicians will take turns over the summer carillon playing season and are scheduled all the way to September 25th. The electronic carillon boasts the ability to play the bells without any of the musicians. Look below for a list of the musicians playing this year.
