David Christensen’s Haunted Tunes from the Bell Tower
On Oct. 31, David Christensen played a set of spooky music from atop the bell tower alongside guest carillonneur Gary Barnett. It was part of the UCR Bell Tower’s 50th anniversary concert series. Christensen,UCR’s carillonneur for the past 29 years, received two music degrees from the University of Redlands and now plays and teaches the carillon full time at UCR. Among the songs performed was the Harry Potter theme, cloaking students and faculty in eerie Halloween spirit.
