Ringing in Convocation Season with the Carillon

With convocation ceremonies underway on campus this week, visitors will likely hear the sound of U of T's carillon playing in celebration. We've put together this video featuring U of T's carilloneur, law alumnus Roy Lee, who gives us an inside look at the instrument.

Incidentally, the largest bell weighs four tonnes and was donated by University College alumni. When it was forged, remnants of the original College bell, that had been destroyed in the fire of 1890, were melted down to be included in the new bell.
