2023: A Century of Women and the Carillon, featuring Ukrainian-American carillonist Simone Browne

Simone Browne plays the 53-bell carillon in Burton Memorial Tower for the University of Michigan’s “2023: A Century of Women and the Carillon” outdoor concert series. Her program opens with 3 works by Ukrainian composers. All concerts are free and family-friendly.

This year’s summer series features artists from across North America and the world playing the Charles Baird Carillon in downtown Ann Arbor. The carillon is an outdoor instrument, and attendees are encouraged to bring picnic blankets, chairs, and anything else they’d like to feel comfortable, and to seat themselves anywhere on Ingalls Mall. Concert programs and a carillon coloring book for kids are available from concert staff at or near the tower door. Dress for the weather, as concerts happen rain or shine. Accessible restrooms are available in the Michigan League.

The nearest municipal parking structures are at 324 Maynard and at 510 E Washington. Street parking is limited due to nearby construction.
