Carillon Recitals

Bells of Perth Ring Out

Perth’s Carilloneur, Dr Ian Cassells will play a wide range of music during 2019. The Recitals will be played on Perth’s largest musical instrument, the bells of St John’s Kirk. The Kirk will be open to the public during the Recitals so that people can hear the music as well as see Ian on the large screens inth e Kirk. The bells can also be clearly heard from the streets and cafes around the Kirk. St John’s has more bells than any other church in Britain (63 bells) and although not all of them are still played,
Perth’s Carillon of bells is a magnificent instrument. The Recitals are informal and it will be possible to come in and out of St John’s throughout the 40 –
45 minutes that Ian will be playing. So if you have not seen a Carillon of Bells being played or would like to enjoy Ian’s skills once more, do come along to St John’s Kirk.
