Karel Keldermans is one of the preeminent carillonneurs in North America and a carillonneur for Concordia Seminary since 2000. He retired in 2012 from the position of full-time carillonneur for the Spring-field, Ill., Park District, where he also served as the director of the renowned International Carillon Festival for 36 years. He has given carillon concerts around the world for the past 40 years. He has released six solo carillon CDs and one of carillon and guitar duets. He was president of the Guild of carillonneurs in North America (GCNA) for five years and served on the Board of Directors for nine years. He and his wife wrote the book, Carillon: The Evolution of a Concert Instrument in North America (Springfield Park District, 1996). Keldermans studied carillon with Piet van den Broek at the Royal Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium, from which he graduated “with great distinction.” He also did postgraduate study with Peter Bakker at the Netherlands Carillon School in Amersfoort. He has a master’s degree in carillon performance and campanology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Ill.

The carillon at Concordia Seminary is one of only 170 such instruments in North America. The 49 bells have been played atop Luther Tower since 1971, and are dedicated to all pastors who have served The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). It is housed in Luther Tower, the 120-foot structure designed by architect Charles Kauder and dedicated in 1966.

Note: While enjoying the concert on the Seminary grounds, we encourage you to observe safe physical distancing from others.
