Lynnli Wang resides in Washington, DC. During the week, she consults for the federal government through Deloitte. On weekends, she rings bells for the residents of the nation's capital. Currently, she performs at Arlington National Cemetery’s Netherlands Carillon. From the balcony of the Netherlands Carillon, guests can look down on the National Mall as they listen to the music of the surrounding bells. Wang graduated from Yale College in 2016 with a degree in literature and a certificate in education studies. She began studying carillon while at Yale, and after playing for three years, Wang passed her carillonneur membership exam in Denver, Colorado, at the 72nd Congress of the Guild of Carillonneurs of North America (GCNA). Since then, she has played concerts throughout the northeast, helped co-host a GCNA Congress at Yale that included a fifty-piece commission project, and edited a children's book on carillons titled Rosie Meets the Carillon. She would like to thank her carillon teacher, Ellen Dickinson, as both a mentor and friend; Wylie Crawford and Joey Brink for inviting her to play for the audiences in Chicago; and her amazing family members, who support her no matter what.
