This summer the University of Denver welcomes
2014 Congress of The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America.
The 72nd GCNA Congress, in honor of John Knox, will be held in Denver, CO next summer. Registration will begin on Monday afternoon, June 16. That evening's entertainment will be the host recital featuring new compositions for the occasion by John Knox and Peter Olejar, along with a special arrangement by Carlo van Ulft. The welcome reception will follow, with open time on the tower for those wishing to play appropriate cocktail music!
Other features of the congress will include artist, exam, new music and class of 2013 recitals; Barnes Scholarship presentations; Ellen Dickenson Part II; a tour of the Coors brewery; an organ recital at St. John's Cathedral by a few of our own; the "Other Instrument Recital"; and the debut of the GCNA singers. Of course the requisite pizza party, ice cream social and banquet will also take place.
The official congress hotel will be the Hilton Garden Inn DTC. The rooms are $124, plus tax, including breakfast. It is about 45 minutes away from the airport and just a few stops away from the University on the Light Rail. The least expensive way to get to the hotel is to book the Super Shuttle (supershuttle.com). It should be around $25 per person one way. There will be dorm rooms available as well as a list of other hotels in the area. Both the hotel and the Williams Tower are within a 10 minute walk from the Light Rail. I hope this mode of transport will be both fun and convenient.
Master Classes will be offered on Monday afternoon by Jeff Davis and Carlo van Ulft. We hope to also have follow up classes available with them on Friday afternoon. The Post-Congress trip will be a tour of the Air Force Academy Chapel and organ, lunch in Manitou Springs and a trip up Pikes Peak on the cog railroad.
I look forward to seeing you all in Denver next summer!
