The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America is an organization of professional musicians dedicated to promoting the carillon art. It supports the development of proficient carillonneurs and encourages the building of new carillons, the improvement of existing installations, and the composition and distribution of carillon music. The Guild is a member of the World Carillon Federation.

Membership in the GCNA is open to all who are interested in the carillon.
A carillon consists of a series of at least 23 tuned bells, played from a keyboard that allows expressiveness through variation in touch, and on which the player, or carillonneur, can play a broad range of music—from arrangements of popular and classical music to original compositions created just for the carillon. Carillon bells can be heard throughout North America, in cities, at churches, on school campuses, in public parks, and in many other places where people gather.
We welcome classified advertisements regarding the sale or donation of items that may be of interest to GCNA members such as used practice consoles, collections of sheet music, publications, recordings, etc. Employers are welcome to submit job postings for carillonneurs and related positions (including full-time or part-time, employee or contract positions).
