As the leading promotor of the carillon art in North America, we advocate for new music. Through the Johan Franco Composition Fund Committee, we offer a recurring series of commissions, thereby enriching the repertoire with new musical perspectives. Often, we do so with a specific intent. For example, our 2022 commissions focused on increasing the repertoire for carillon played in concert with other instruments.
Since 1982, The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America has commissioned more than 2 dozen compositions for carillon. View all commissions to date in the GCNA Music Store or check out the individual works below.
