Construction on the new carillon tower at Oakland University, in Rochester Hills, Michigan–the Elliott Carillon Tower–continues apace–2 pictures from December are below. To view a video of a Petit & Fritsen interview that shows the Elliott Carillon Tower bells, go to YouTube and search BV Brabant 2013-aflevering 8 — Petit & Fritsen.

The Elliott Carillon Tower main frame is now topped off, though still without the crowning metal-clad cupola.  The tower will be 151 feet tall and will contain a 49 chromatic bell carillon with a manual clavier in the playing cabin in the shorter middle section and with all bells above the cabin in the larger opening.
