All concerts are rain or shine.  Best listening spots are on the Town Common or in the upper parking lot behind the Town Hall off Central Street.  Tours of the bell-tower are available after most concerts.

Norwood's Fifty-Bell Memorial Carillon was cast by Gillett and Johnston, Bellfounders,
Croydon, England and, together with the Norwood Memorial Building and Tower,
was dedicated on Armistice Day, November 11, 1928. The instrument was a gift to
his fellow townspeople from the late Walter F. Tilton, a prominent local banker
and civic leader.

The Carillon Concert Series is sponsored by the Town of Norwood and by a special gift from the Norwood Women's Community Committee, and by private donations to the Town’s Carillon Fund.  This year’s series is also supported in part by a grant from the Norwood Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.



Visit the The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America (GCNA) to find more information.
