Cataloging the Vertical Files of the Anton Brees Carillon Library

June 7, 2016

Join us on Friday, June 17 at 11 am in the SML Lecture Hall, for a fascinating talk outlining the work undertaken to catalog the vertical files of the Anton Brees Carillon Library in Lake Wales, Florida – a unique collection encompassing more than 80 linear feet and forty boxes of materials related to the carillon (an instrument of at least 23 bells in chromatic series) and the professionals that play them. This particular collection is only a portion of what is considered to be one of the largest collections of carillon-related materials in the world. Established in 1968 and named after the Gardens’ first carillonneur, the library is located on the fifth level of the Singing Tower. All are welcome!
