Imagine that you play a musical instrument so rare that no one knows it exists. Imagine further that this instrument weighs several tons, making it next to impossible to perform indoors. To complicate matters, imagine that you have combined this unknown, very large instrument with other musical instruments thereby creating a completely new sound and musical style never before experienced.
Cast in Bronze was created to bring the haunting beauty of the CARILLON to more listeners by demonstrating its versatility with other instruments. This objective has been accomplished through live performances with live musicians, recordings, and solo performances accompanied by musical tracks.

Built in Coatesville, Pennsylvania and inaugurated in December 2010, this is the first traveling carillon built in the United States. It is comprised of 25 bells dated 1951, and 10 new bells cast by Royal Eijsbouts, a bell foundry located in The Netherlands.
