Luray Carillon Singing Tower
Musical Architecture at Its Finest
The Luray Carillon Singing Tower, officially known as the Belle Brown Northcott Memorial, was erected in 1937 in memory of Colonel T.C. Northcott’s wife.
At 117 feet in height, the Luray Carillon Singing Tower contains a carillon of 47 bells. The largest bell weighs 7,640 pounds and is six feet in diameter. The smallest weighs a mere 12 1/2 pounds.
Recognized as one of the country’s major carillons, regularly scheduled recitals are held through the spring, summer, and fall.
The carillon is situated in a park opposite Luray Caverns.
The Luray Carillon Singing Tower holds recitals that will are played by a guest carillonneur and other featured musicians. It also holds community services at the base of the tower, like the Sunrise Easter Service.
All recitals are free and feature music from a variety of styles and eras, including patriotic, folk, hymns, Classical, original compositions, and pop.
