Julianne Vanden Wyngaard, Grand Valley's university carillonneur, closes the 12th Annual Beckering Family Carillon Summer Concert Series. A native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, she began her musical study at age 4 and continued piano at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Michigan State University. She was a noted concert pianist when she joined the faculty at Grand Valley State University in 1967 where her work included piano studio teaching and management of the Arts at Noon Series. Vanden Wyngaard began her carillon study in 1994 and was accepted as a student at the Netherlands Carillon School in Amersfoort. In 1999 she qualified as a carillonneur member of The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America and received the first diploma in 2000 from the NCS in Amersfoort. Since that time, she has been the principal performer on the two carillons at Grand Valley State, where she also presents a summer concert series on each campus featuring guest carillonneurs from around the world.
