by Richard Veit
Adrian Patrick Gebruers, carillonneur at Saint Colmann's Cathedral in Cobb, Ireland, will play a guest recital at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, on the McLane Carillon in the tower of Pat Neff Hall on the campus of Baylor University.
Gebruers, who currently serves as president of the World Carillon Federation, is in the midst of a month-long series of recitals on Texas carillons before returning to Ireland after appearances in Australia and New Zealand.
In addition to his church position in Ireland, Gebruers is lecturer in carillon in the music department of the University College, Cork.
Baylor's McLane Carillon is a gift of the Drayton McLane family and the McLane Company, Inc., of Temple. Dedicated on Nov. 4, 1988, it has 48 bells, each weighing between two and 27 pounds. They are activated from a keyboard that permits expressive playing.
This recital is free and open to the public. Bring a blanket or lawn chair for your comfort while listening. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
