The process for the Carillonneur examination is an annual event. The process requires approximately eight months, starting in October with application and concluding the following June with the exam recital at the annual congress.
The purpose of the List of Prior Required Exam Pieces is to inform the general Guild membership and prospective candidates alike about carillon music that has been chosen by the Committee as required pieces in past years. The list also reflects the Committee's musical expectation level needed to achieve Carillonneur membership. Required pieces for the current exam cycles are presented below.
Candidates who have special needs may submit a written request to the GCNA Examinations Chair for special accommodations to be made. Such requests must be made by the October 16 deadline for the respective exam cycle each time a candidate applies for an examination. The President and the Examinations Chair will consider each case individually.
Information presented below is for prospective candidates who wish to take the exam with the goal of performing an advancement recital at the 2020 Congress.
The application and fee of $40 (non-refundable) must be postmarked by October 16, 2019. Each applicant must be an Associate member of the GCNA in good standing with dues paid by that date. Those applicants who are not already Guild members must accomplish this by mailing a New Membership Application and fees to the GCNA Corresponding Secretary, postmarked by October 16, 2019.
