Percussion and carillon bells meet in a rare concert at UPS

Behind rhythmic maracas and whirring tambourine comes a strange, ethereal pulse, a sound both alien and religious. It’s the sound of a carillon, not tinkling folk tunes all by itself at the top of a bell tower but woven into a swishing, ringing tapestry by award-winning composer Neil Thornock. The piece is called “Lurgy,” and it’s just one in an unusual concert on Friday (Jan. 23) at the University of Puget Sound.
