Belmont University Bell Tower/Carillon

Belmont University Bell Tower/Carillon



The Carillon is in the Belmont University Bell Tower, in front of the Beaman Student Center. Located in the heart of Belmont’s beautiful campus, Carillon performances are held at various times during the school year to commemorate university events and festive holidays. The Carillon is played by Dr. Richard Shadinger, Professor of Music in the School of Music.

The ‘Singing Tower’ built around 1853, was long one of the landmarks of the Nashville Countryside and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. It was part of the estate of Colonel and Mrs. Acklen and was used as a water tower, with a moat which was spanned by a bridge at the entrance. During the Civil War it was used as a signal tower. During the time of Ward-Belmont School, the idea of a ‘singing tower’ arose.
