We enjoyed a great concert that included several pieces of classical music and even a tango. The concert lasted about an hour. This area, and the entire University, is beautiful; truly inspiring. I did not know about these concerts; really enjoyed the music.

Interesting aspect of Gothic Revival that lends the academic aura to the campus. You really can't be on campus and not see the Cleveland Tower.

During the summer, there are free carillon concerts. The musicians are from all around the world. It's a nice way to spend an hour. It borders the golf course and the rest of the buildings there are graduate housing so they are not normally opened...More

If you are into design and mind creativity the only thing that you have to do is to stand outside of Cleveland Tower and look upwards. Such beauty and vision.

Being a music lover, I was excited to read that there's a FREE carillon concert every Sunday at 1 PM. Dozens of people bring lawn chairs to listen to this concert. We left after about 5 minutes, since the carillon in the Cleveland Tower is...More
