Carillon Concert Schedule

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 special gifts from the Norwood Women's Community Committee and from the family of Betsy Dobson, and by private donations to the Town’s Carillon Fund.
