11th Annual Illinois Tower Bell Bash

May 6, 2023
1135 E. 57th Street (57th & South University) Chicago, Illinois 60637

Thanks to the Hallers, new bells are coming to The University of Chicago this summer.  Your chance to ring the (in)famous Mitchell Tower Bells will soon be gone.

You are welcome to join us at any of our Saturday practices which we hold whenever the university is in session.  You can see the university's academic calendar here.

On Saturday, May 6th, we will host the 11th Annual Illinois Tower Bell Bash with extended ringing (10:00am to 4:30pm, unsilenced bells from 12noon to 1:00pm and 2:00pm to 3:00pm, otherwise we will use the simulator).

We hold monthly open houses which include 30 minutes (12:30pm to 1:00pm) of unsilenced ringing. The open houses for the rest of the school year will be on:
February 25th
March 25th
April 29th
May 27th

We hope to see you soon.  Please let me know if you would like further information.
