Student carillonneur to give spring recital


May 22, 2013

Jacob Hofeling, the Arizona State Credit Union Student Carillonneur, will present his spring recital at 5:30 p.m., May 31, at the carillon, located on the lower level of Old Main at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.

Hofeling will perform a mix of pieces, including some of his own compositions. He also will present computer-enhanced music, where he blends the carillon with other keyboard instruments.

The Maas-Rowe Symphonic Carillon, with 258 bells, is the largest such instrument in the United States. It was given to ASU in 1966 by Associated Students of ASU as a memorial to those in the ASU community who gave their lives in service to their country.

The carillon was put in storage when Matthews Center was remodeled and was lost for nearly 35 years. It was re-discovered in 2002.

The concert is free. Hofeling is an organ performance major at ASU. For more information, send an e-mail to carillon@asu.edu, or call Carl Cross, (480) 965-2113.
