The annual series takes place at 7 PM on Mondays from June 21 to August 9, featuring performers from Michigan and around the U.S. playing either Burton or Lurie Tower. The carillon is an outdoor instrument, and attendees are requested to maintain social distance in the outdoor listening areas surrounding the towers. Attendees are required to follow the University of Michigan, Washtenaw County, Michigan state, and federal guidelines for large outdoor gatherings.

BIOGRAPHY: Hyojin (Jenna) Moon is a doctoral candidate in Sacred Music at the University of Michigan where she studies with Dr. James Kibbie (organ), Dr. Tiffany Ng (carillon), and Dr. Kola Owolabi (sacred music). Moon received her master’s degree from U-M with the Michele Johns Scholarship, and her bachelor’s degree from Trinity Christian College (organ and music education).

Moon has performed over 100 weekday carillon recitals at U-M. An avid carillon ambassador for diversity, she programmed her dissertation recital with an inclusive repertoire to celebrate carillon music by people of color and women. Moon organized a student carillon concert series, including “New Perspective & Inclusivity on Digital Carillon Concert,” collaborating with the Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (Excellence in Entrepreneurship, Career Empowerment & Leadership Enterprise Fund), and a new Augmented Reality carillon performance with Architecture students (supported by a Sonic Scenographies Research Grant). She published her carillon works, 'Sae-Ta-Ryung (Birdsong)' and 'Parang-Sae (Bluebird),' in "Global Rings" (CHI Press, 2020). She was Vice President of the University of Michigan Carillon Guild.

Moon has extensive experience playing organ at churches throughout North America, the U-M Annual Organ Conferences, the AGO Lenten Recital Series, and the Brown Bag Recital Series on the Letourneau organ at the U-M. In 2019, Moon received a Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship to participate in the Netherlands and Germany U-M organ tour to perform in masterclasses at thirteen historic organs in Europe, including Amsterdam, Norden, Cappel, Hamburg, Leipzig, Rötha, Dresden, and Waltershausen.

Moon’s awards include the 2021 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Spirit Award, Rackham Dissertation Fellowship, Rackham Doctoral Fellowship, a Sonic Scenographies research grant, and the Excellence in Entrepreneurship, Career Empowerment & Leadership Enterprise Fund. Moon has worked as U-M summer carillon concert series manager, social media specialist, and cataloguing assistant under Dr. Ng's direction.
