The Yale University Guild of Carillonneurs is a student-run organization that rings the bells of Harkness Tower. We are excited to welcome new students into the Guild!

How do you play the bells of Harkness?
The bells are rung by playing the carillon, a keyboard instrument using both the hands and feet.

When can you hear us play?
Every day at 12:30pm and 5:30pm.

How do I join?
The Heel Process, our 5-week audition process, begins on September 10th! Auditions will be on Sunday, October 15th, 2023. For more information, click here!
