W.S.C. CARILLON DEDICATION PRESENTATION Narrator Ladies and gentlemen - from the Stewart Carillon Tower - the Bells of Weber State College. Carillon #1 (Brief musical introduction) Narrator Perhaps no single musical instrument is so rich in beauty and tradition as is the carillon. Majestic, dignified and unique, the bells of the carillon are a grand reminder of inobling virtues and lofty ideals. Long associated as the instrument of the community, carillons were used anciently to summon the population to meetings, to warn of danger, proclaim a victory or toll a defeat. Bells were also used to proclaim curfue and for the playing of recitals on holidays and festive occasions. Carillons were the voice of the community, and their music, that of the land and its people. State and local campus planners wisely provided for a carillon tower as an integral part of the campus feeling that a tower and carillon of bells would symbolize the growth of the college and would serve as an association of the student with his alma mater in days to come. Standing as a campus landmark it would link the past with the future - a distinctive symbol of the development of the college.
