We hoped we could organise a festive re-opening in september that year, but more restoration was necessary so that took a year longer.

Because of this event there where only 3 concerts in 2018:

  • 24th of June 2018: Chardy van Riel played as a guest carillonneur
  • 7th of September 2018: Ensemble of Maarten on the carillon and KVT Harmony during the village fair
  • 15th of September 2018: Boudewijn Zwart with Campana Concort in the village church

2017 was a busy year for the carillon with a series of concerts in various shapes. The carillon played together with keyboard, accompanied a singer, played together with Harmony ‘Kunst na den Arbeid’ and was part of the ensemble ‘Campana Consort’. Besides that many solo concerts took place. Read it all in the 2017 programme booklet.
