Carillon Restoration

As part of the rehabilitation of the Parliament Building, the Peace Tower Carillon is undergoing work to conserve and modernize the instrument, its playing room and related components. Besides structural upgrades and masonry restoration on the Peace Tower, the work will involve replacing the clappers on some of the carillon bells and upgrading the manual keyboard to a World Carillon Federation modern standard, with a new manual transmission system in the belfry. The refurbished Peace Tower Carillon will remain an acoustic, mechanical and manual concert instrument for live performances by generations of carillonneurs to come.
