LAKE WALES - From 4 to 12 March, the International Carillon Festival took place in the Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales (Florida, USA) for the 23rd time. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world to enjoy carillon playing in peaceful and quiet surroundings. The construction of the 100 hectares of gardens and the construction of the tower with the beautiful Taylor carillon began in 1921 on the instructions of the Dutch emigrant Edward. W. Bok. He wanted to create "a place of beauty unmatched in the country", which has undoubtedly succeeded. During the festival, concerts were given by Geert D'hollander (regular carillonneur of the Bok tower), Frans Haagen, Koen Cosaert, Lisa Lonie (also with Janet Tebbel) and Ellen Dickinson.
