About the Guild


The Guild is the student organization responsible for ringing the bells in Harkness Tower. It is a self-perpetuating group: each fall, the current members give lessons to freshmen and sophomores (and sometimes graduate students) on the practice carillon, and, after auditions, elect new members to the Guild.

The Guild was founded in 1949 by Elliot H. Kone BR '49 as the Guild of Yale Bellringers. It was renamed in 1964, two years before the donation of 44 additional bells expanded the original chime to a 54-bell carillon.

We currently have 21 full-time members, and a few adjunct members. Each Guild member has their own ring spot (see above!). Our teacher is Ellen Dickinson, who is a Yale and Guild alum; she comes in a few times a week to give us lessons to help us continue playing beautiful music for all of campus!

Besides ringing bells for Yale's campus, the Guild does two yearly tours. The smaller tour is Mini-Tour, and past Mini-Tours have taken the Guild to Pennsylvania and Boston. The larger tour alternates between a European Tour and a Domestic Tour.

We also play handbells. For more information, click here!

During the summer, the Guild also hosts a summer series that invites carillonneurs from around the world to come play a weekly concert. In general, the Guild simply loves spending time together, so there are lots of snacks, dinners, movies, hanging out, and lots of general fun is involved!

Mitchell Dubin

Franklin 2025
Treasurer 2022-23 Economics


Zoe Pian

Timothy Dwight 2025
MB&B

Zoe is a pianist from the small town of New York City. When she isn't holed up in her bedroom, she can be found touching grass on science hill and making a futile but considerable effort to establish an interspecies friendship with New Haven birds.

Peter Zhang

Berkeley 2025

Peter is from the frozen land of Vancouver, Canada. When not training to climb spiral staircases, he is probably shovelling peanut M&Ms into his mouth in a Bass cubicle.

Jiayi Liao

Morse 2025

Jiayi (Joyce) is from Beijing, China. On a sunny afternoon, you can find her chilling outside the Beinecke, taking a walk in the cemetery, or climbing (spiral) stairs. She can't live without museums, books, and (good) food!

Isaiah Suchman

Morse 2025
Linguistics

If it's after midnight, Isaiah is probably trying to find the Tower light switch so he can get in an "early evening" practice. Otherwise, he might be hiking, fiddling with the fonts on his computer, satiating his Wikipedia addiction, or spelunking in the deepest recesses of the Humanities Quadrangle.

Eric Wang

2025


Tiffany Toh

Saybrook 2025
Electrical/Biomedical Engineering


Daniel Pak

Graduate Student 2024
Biomedical Engineering

Daniel loves watching awesome people play awesome music. Hopefully he will actually get to practicing and play like that someday. In addition to the carillon, he has recently rekindled his interest in electric guitar.

Lea Kim

Hopper 2024
Social Chair, Newsletter Editor Chemistry and Music

Lea is an iced latte aficionado from Solon, Ohio. When she is not mastering the art of climbing stairs, Lea spends her time playing the violin, drawing chair conformations, and watching all and every food-related video on the internet.

Maggy Lambo

Silliman 2024
Treasurer, Webmaster Electrical Engineering


Tori Lu

Silliman 2024
Art/EVST

Tori is a rat dog enthusiast from New York. In her free time she draws ugly pictures. If you would like to hear anime music on the bells email requests to victoria.lu@yale.edu

Nathan Moran

Franklin 2024
Music


Kameron Duncan

2024


Sharon Ahn

Branford 2023
Recording Engineer, Social Chair Music

Sharon is probably in rehearsal, in a practice room, or napping (or any combination of the above)... Please leave a message after the tone. *facgce*

Zacharie Sciamma

Davenport 2023
Tour Manager Computer Science

Zatch has been meaning to write a bio, but has never quite gotten to it. Maybe one day a Webmasters' Choice (TM) photo will appear here too. Oh bell.

Julia Zheng

Jonathan Edwards 2023
Co-Chair S&DS, Global Affairs

Loves bright, autumn mornings & runs in the rain. Avid fan of Debussy & dominant sevenths. Enjoys stand up comedy & bad puns. Rings big bells from chime to chime :)

Kimie Han

Saybrook 2023

Kimie is a brain enthusiast from the marvelous college of the grapes (say what?!). When she’s not climbing stairs, she often finds herself dabbling in piano, painting her cat, getting overly competitive about IM ping pong, drinking orange passion fruit guava juice, and catching squirrels on Old Campus.

Yilin Chen

Timothy Dwight 2023
Global Affairs and Economics

Likes: hot pot, languages, Grey's Anatomy, Broadway and French musicals, her cat, art galleries, taking low quality photos of high quality people. Dislikes: keeping any plant alive for more than a semester, Yale Dining's feeble attempts at Asian food. Yilin is from Beijing, China!

Daniel Lu

Davenport 2023


Evan Hochstein

2023


Erica Ho

Graduate Student 2022
Psychology

Erica is a PhD student in clinical psychology and neuroscience, and she is also a die-hard Cornell Chimesmaster. Erica loves staircases, cats, and whales.

Alvin Chung

Silliman 2022
Economics

Alvin is a freshman from Potomac, Maryland. He is a percussionist in YSO but a Carillonneur at heart. He also practices the piano every then and now. Give him a box of Ferrero Rochers and he will always be with you through thick. The thin will cost you extra. Maybe a chipotle burrito bowl consisting of white rice, steak, tomatoes, sour cream, corn, cheese, lettuce and guacamole?

Jeremy Weiss

Jonathan Edwards 2022
Tour Manager, Webmaster Computer Science and Math


Adam Chen

Timothy Dwight 2022
History of Art

Oh no, someone mentioned Bach to Adam and now he won't stop talking. Other topics to avoid: genealogy, calligraphy, Baroque architecture, and really just art history in general. Like Costco, Adam is from Kirkland, Washington and loves free samples.

Janine Tu

Ezra Stiles 2022
Chemistry and Economics

Janine is from North Carolina and enjoys learning about Organic Chemistry, the Kardashians, and most recently, big bells. When not struggling with spiral staircases, she can be found watching The Bachelor, taking a 12 minute nap, or trying to play big chords on the piano.

Robert Carter

Hopper 2021
Physics

Robert is from Corpus Christi, Texas (a.k.a The Sparkling City by the Sea). He enjoys watching rousing physics videos on YouTube, among other types of videos. Robert plays the piano and is also a Baroque enthusiast who likes to indulge his ears in the beautiful sounds of the harpsichord and organ. Robert constantly asks himself where he is, not because he is lost geographically, but because he is lost inside.

Michael Gancz

Murray 2021
Social Chair, Recording Engineer, Librarian Music (MA/BA)

Michael was taking their trombone out for a stroll when they strayed too far from the new colleges and got lost. Now they're stuck in Harkness Tower and can't get down. Please send help.

Sarah Luckart

Branford 2019
Psychology

Sarah is interested in brains and tech, but not AI. Outside of the Tower, they fix computers, cook, and sometimes play viola. They have a collection of small succulents and their favorite is a red-headed cactus named George (Weasley).

Alicia Ding

Pierson 2016
HSHM and MCDB

Alicia is in Pierson College. She sometimes laughs at inopportune moments, also plays French horn in the Yale Symphony Orchestra and has an affinity for boxes. She also generally prefers Oxford commas, but...

Andy Zhang

Graduate Student 2015
Linguistics

Andy, whose cognitive science major was neurolinguistics-flavored, enjoys botany, cats, espresso, and metropolises.

Katie Leiby

Silliman 2014
Biomedical Engineering

Katie is a biomedical engineering major. In her free time, she enjoys running, cooking, and knitting. She regrets that two of her favorite things, peanut butter and anything French, are mutually exclusive.

Ellen Dickinson

Guild Advisor and Teacher Music

Ellen '97, '99 MUS, has previously been a member of the Board of Directors of the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America. She joined the Yale Guild in her sophomore year, and served as co-chair in her junior and senior years. She now serves as the Guild's advisor, and has two children, ages five and seven.
