Carillon Recital: Jay Yin, Julia Ong, Junyu Deng, and Wesley Arai
Students Jay Yin, Julia Ong, and Junyu Deng will join University Carillonist Wesley Arai for a special recital on the Storke Tower carillon. The four performers will present some of their favorite music, including arrangements of well-known classical and popular tunes as well as original works for carillon. The recital will also feature some fun duets!
Bring a blanket or lawn chair, grab some snacks, and enjoy the recitals from the lawn outside the tower!
UCSB’s Storke Tower and its carillon were a gift from Thomas Storke, former publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press. The instrument consists of 61 bells cast by Petit & Fritsen of the Netherlands, with the bells weighing anywhere from 18 pounds to 2.5 tons, and spanning five octaves.
