Millennium Carillon In Naperville Now Open For 2013 Season

naperville millennium carillon

Moser Tower and Millennium Carillon in Naperville is now open.  And it’s a really amazing structure.

If you’re not sure what the Millennium Carillon is, here’s an overview.

History

The project was started back in 1998.  It was nothing more than a few people who got together and wanted to give back to the Naperville community – they are the “Friends of Naperville.”

Word spread of this interesting project and soon more people got involved and more money was donated.  The wheels were in motion.

More than a decade after the idea was spawned, the first concert took place on June 29, 2000.
