FLORIDA CARILLONNEURS ARE A TRIPLE THANKSGIVING TREAT!

[b]Frances Newell testing. Over Thanksgiving weekend, I heard Lee Cobb play his 30th anniversary recital at the Church of the Ascension in Clearwater, Florida. He premiered his own composition, Psalm Meditation:"Puff of Wind, Passing Shadows", commissioned for the occasion. He also played "Sunset Swing", by Frances Newell and really made those bells swing!
On the way, I stopped at Bok Tower to hear Geert D'Hollander play. Geert is the new director at Bok Tower and has exciting plans!
Last year, I visited Dr. Laura Ellis, who directs the oragan and carillon program at the University of Gainesville in Florida. I heard her students play and saw, once again, what a great teacher she is.
More details and photos will follow in my article about these concerts in the Spring 2013 issue of carillon news.

John, I tried to upload photos, but it won't upload anything over 256KB. A lot of photos, including my jpgs, are about 380 KB, so can you get this software to allow for maybe 400-500KB files to upload?
Cheers!

I don't know if there's a way to play with the limitations on picture size or not. I'll have to ask Dawn about that. I'm glad you can post photos in some way. Thanks! - John
