Congrats II the Edmonton Journal's Paula Simons in realizing the educational & emotional value of musique. Her tour & column promoting the return of carillon to the Alberta Legislature was spellbinding. Also thanks II choral director Robert de Frece IV playing the new instrument & Minister of Infrastructure Ray Danyluk IV being Paula's tour guide. Music is a great art form & it certainly stimulates the mind. This carillon will help return the Legislature back to its former musical glory & make it a more stimulating environment to be in. The music will certainly be more entertaining than the actual chamber debates. What I really appreciate is that Paula & Minister Danyluk delve inII the history of the original carillon from MCMLXVII (1967), a Social Studies factoid if there ever was one.
