Dear friends and carillon enthusiasts,

Tomorrow is our 6th concert! We are delighted to have Charles Dairay, from
France, to come play for us. Charles is a multi-talented musician -- not only
is he an accomplished carillonneur (with accolades such as the laureate of the
5th Queen Fabiola International Carillon Competition), he has also previously
won prizes for the saxophone, piano and bassoon.

A graduate of the Royal Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium, Charles is now the
main carillonneur in Orchies and Le Quesnoy, and the assistant carillonneur in
Saint-Amand Les Eaux, his hometown.

The program tomorrow will feature original music for the carillon (including a
piece written by Boudewijn Zwart, who played 5 weeks ago), arrangements of
pieces familiar to one and all: Spring, from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Maria,
from West Side Story, and My Way.
