University of Chicago Carillon
The Rockefeller Chapel's Carillon is a musical instrument you can find on the campus of the University of Chicago. This instrument is the second largest carillon in the world that consists of 72 bells and 100 tons of bronze.
The carillon is played mechanically through a keyboard. Carillonist, Joey Brink, explains how he plays this instrument with his fist instead of his fingers. At the University of Chicago students climb 271 steps to learn how the carillon works at the top of a tower.
Brink has 20 students in the carillon studio. One student, says taking Brink's class has been monumental for his studies.
"It's definitely something that has changed my life. I'm going to Belgium next year for the Royal School of Carillon in Mechelen."
