Naperville City Carillonneur Tim Sleep will feature songs honoring each branch of the armed services as well as classics such as “The Star Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful.”

“This is the eighth year that we have performed the pre-parade concert,” said Sleep. “People stop to enjoy the music as they walk along the Riverwalk toward the parade.”

The Third Gift
Moser Tower and Millennium Carillon was begun in 1998 as a labor of love by a small group of Naperville families, and in a short time the vision spread to many, who donated the funds to make the vision a reality.
In the tradition of Centennial Beach and the Riverwalk, the Millennium Carillon is a gift from the people of our community for all future generations to enjoy.
Those who donated funds to make our carillon possible also left messages about themselves, their life in Naperville, and their support of the carillon project. You can read their messages in this cyberspace time capsule. A special section of the web site displays the lists of donors. You can read the messages of those that left messages by clicking on any names that are blue and underlined.
