Annie Wang, Student Carillonneur:
Annie Wang is a rising fourth-year chemistry major at the University of Chicago. She learned about the carillon on a random tour of Rockefeller Chapel during her first week on campus and luckily joined the UChicago Guild of Carillonists a few weeks later! She passed her carillonneur exam at the 2023 Congress at Cohasset and is very excited to perform at her first concerts this summer. Outside of her love of tower bells, she does research on craniofacial biology and enjoys trying new desserts, drawing, and painting.

Kevin Chang, Student Carillonneur:
Kevin Chang is a Student Carillonist and M.D.-Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine doing his Ph.D. in molecular engineering. Kevin is from New York and went to college at Yale University, where he majored in molecular biophysics and biochemistry and learned to play the carillon. He was a member of the Yale Guild of Carillonneurs from 2016 to 2020 and served as co-chair in 2019 – 20. He has been a member of the UChicago Guild of Carillonists since 2020. Kevin is currently a student of Alex Johnson and previously studied with Joey Brink and Ellen Dickinson. In his free time, Kevin enjoys taking naps, eating at new restaurants, going on runs, cooking with his air fryer, trying to lift weights, and playing indie and strategy video games. One day, Kevin hopes to buy a carillon for his backyard.

John Mori, Student Carillonneur:
John Mori is an economics Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago interested in microeconomic theory, specifically in decision theory and welfare economics. As a member of the University of Chicago Guild of Carillonists, he plays weekly on the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillon. He is also a member of the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America. On the carillon, he enjoys taking song requests, making arrangements, and dabbling with jazz improvisation. Before Chicago, he played the carillon at Yale University. Outside of carillon and his studies, he enjoys playing piano, biking and running along the lakefront, and reading fiction.
