Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 26 September 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

At the base of the Riverwalk's Rotary Hill stands the majestic Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower, a unique, 16-story structure with a 72- bell musical carillon. This gift, given to the Naperville community to commemorate the dawn of the New Millennium, was built through community support and donations, and is maintained through a partnership between the Naperville Park District, Millennium Carillon Foundation and the City of Naperville.

Visitors can climb the 253 steps to the top of the tower on the guided tour and enjoy the spectacular view, where on a clear day the Chicago Skyline can be seen.

Tuesday night recitals are performed during the Summer by carillonneurs who come from all over the country and world, including Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands.
