 Explore the inside of Baker Park's Joseph Dill Baker Memorial Carillon in Frederick. The class will be led by City Carillonneur John Widmann, who will give you a history of the carillon as an instrument and how it came to be in Baker Park. Widmann will also show playing techniques including welcoming you to try playing a bell or two. There is also a practice keyboard at the base of the tower, which will be part of the tour. The carillon is located a short distance off North Bentz Street within Baker Park. There is a 50-step spiral staircase that participants will need to climb to the playing chamber.
