On the 10th anniversary of the Crystal Cathedral, this beautiful 236-foot Bell Tower was dedicated. As one of Orange County's tallest structures, the tower is comprised of highly polished, mirrored quality, stainless steel prisms forming a spectacular spire which catches the light from all directions. This Philip Johnson-designed completion of the former Crystal Cathedral houses a 52-bell carillon named in honor of Dr. Schuller's wife, Arvella Schuller. The spire has been named the Crean Tower honoring John and Donna Crean, who provided a large gift to begin construction in 1988.
This concert series will feature carillonneur, Melissa Weidner. Ms. Weidner is a professional musician in Southern California, specializes in keyboard instrument performance.
Have you ever wondered how a 52 bell carillon is played from a position over 200 feet above the ground?
