Carillon Concert & Community-Wide Contemplative Pause

November 01, 2019|12:00pm

The Hoover carillon bells ring again this year to signal the University’s commitment to emotional well-being. All members of the Stanford community are encouraged to pause, reflect and take time to unwind.

Gather in Dohrmann Grove, the Oval Ear, Hoover Lawn or Meyer Green to share the concert and contemplative pause together as a community. You may also enjoy the experience by pausing wherever you are on or off campus. Concert by Tim Zerlang, Stanford Carilloneur. Bring a picnic if you wish.

Meyer Green: Gather for a pre-carillon-concert show by the a cappella group Ragapella.

Dorhmann Grove, Hoover Lawn and the Oval Ear: Enjoy gentle stretching led by Rebecca Snowball or guided tai chi led by Tony Wong and quiet space for simple relaxation or meditation. If you plan to join the gentle stretching, please bring your yoga mat.

PARKING: Free parking will be available in Lot 2 behind the Stanford stadium. From there, it is a short 10-minute walk to the Carillon Concert. PLEASE NOTE: The lot is being shared with Stanford construction workers and may be crowded. Please avoid parking in shuttle paths that are set up for the workers.  

Registration requested but not required. Registration opens September 10.
