Short Attention Span Series Celebrates Bells

Come to the Short Attention Span Series of the UCSD Arts Library for a seasonal musical offering on Wednesday, December 15, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Seuss Room of Geisel Library here at UCSD.

It’s free! Refreshments will be served at this lively show celebrating bells.

Bells from around the world will be heard in person and via live feed and via historic recordings. Also:  The Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra will play some seasonal music and story lady Melanie Treco will read a special tale.

University Carillonneur Scott Paulson is your host at this event. A carillonneur is the person who performs music on clock-tower chimes and carillon bells.  Paulson cares for and performs on the chimes atop Geisel Library, commissioning new works for those bells and playing song requests live.  Yes!  There really are chimes atop Geisel Library–it is NOT a recording.
