The Naperville Park District began a new lighting program in 2013 that will wash the Millennium Carillon in decorative colors to add color to holidays celebrations.
From April 1-14, the Carillon sporedt blue lights in honor of "Light It Up Blue," the World Autism Awareness event.
Green lighting washed over the Carillon from April 15-22 to celebrate Earth Week and other light colors are planned for celebrations throughout the year. Watch for them!
We continue to play several times each week. Please visit our Recital Schedule page for a listing of our recitals over the next couple months.
For reservations, please contact us.
The Carillon is located along the Riverwalk near Rotary Hill in the heart of Naperville, IL Details.
Visitors to the Tower will see an awe-inspiring view of the area when they reach the observation deck, 14 stories up. Read all about it.
Moser Tower and Millennium Carillon was begun in 1998 as a labor of love by a small group of Naperville families, and in a short time the vision spread to many, who donated the funds to make the vision a reality.
In the tradition of Centennial Beach and the Riverwalk, the Millennium Carillon is a gift from the people of our community for all future generations to enjoy.
Those who donated funds to make our carillon possible also left messages about themselves, their life in Naperville, and their support of the carillon project. You can read their messages in this cyberspace time capsule. A special section of the web site, Thanks To Public Donations displays the lists of donors. You can read the messages of those that left messages by clicking on any names that are blue and underlined.
