McMurry University Carillon

It's mid-day at McMurry - the skies are a beautiful, clear blue, the air is unseasonably warm and the light breeze is the cherry on top! It couldn't be a more perfect day to announce that our beloved Carillon has been the recipient of some TLC - it is now fully automated and playing on a programed schedule! Please enjoy the music!
#AlaCumba

The Carillon has received some very much-needed TLC! It has been updated to play automatically on a programmed schedule, but is still playable manually.
