Carillon Renovation Project

Robert A. Taft Memorial Carillon Bell Renovation ProjectChristoph Paccard Bell Foundry, located in historic Charleston, South Carolina, has been chosen to perform a major upgrade of the striking and bell control system that operates the 27 bell carillon that is the Robert A. Taft Memorial Carillon located on the Federal campus in Washington D.C.

Christoph Paccard Bell Foundry was selected for the project because of their musical and technical expertise and the very high quality and reliability of their bell and clock control systems.

One of the features of the new control system and bell strikers is technology that allows the bell strikers to operate very quickly in spite of their large size giving musicians more creative freedom and flexibility in playing musical selections that include quickly repetitive notes.
