On the 53-bell carillon in Burton Tower, university carillonist Tiffany Ng will premiere the first carillon works ever written by Black South African composers. Audiences are invited to listen outdoors on Ingalls Mall. Entitled "‘Your Rhythm Is Rebellion’: Ringing in Postcolonial Carillon Solidarity," this landmark concert is part of the Dutch Studies theme semester "Dutch Studies: A Decolonial Revision" and features commissioned works by Bongani Ndodana-Breen, Chantal Willie-Petersen, and Kendall Williams, alongside music from Native American, Curaçaoan, and Indonesian composers and traditions, as well as a new carillon arrangement of the 1913 art song "An Evening Calm" by Cape Coast (Ghana) composer Charles Emmanuel Graves (Kwamena Abayie), grandfather of University Diversity and Social Transformation Professor Herbert Winful. The commissions will be co-premiered in South Africa by carillonist Alexios Vicatos on the carillon of Cape Town.
