Designed by Arthur Peabody, the UW-Madison carillon was originally dedicated in 1936 with 25 bells. Additions and replacements resulted in the current configuration of 56 bells ranging in size from 15 to 6,823 pounds.
The UW-Madison carillon is one of three in Wisconsin, the others being at Marquette University in Milwaukee and First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Green Bay.
Please note (April 27, 2017): Carilloneer Lyle Anderson, who has retired, will play a May 5th memorial service honoring students who have died this past year, and will then return to play twice a month.For further historical information:
