Playing 'Les Tournaisiens sont la' on the Carillon of the Belfry of Tournai, Belgium




Never in my life did I play piano let alone the carillon, the piano-like instrument that is used to play the bells in Belfries around the world.

My 3rd challenge in Tournai was to play 'Les Tournaisiens sont la' live in the middle of the day for the entire city.

WHAAAAAAA...

Luckily I could count on the help of professional carillon player Francois whom teached me the basics in no time. Such a rush though making these massive bells ring for an entire city.

While I was up there I also took a step outside to enjoy the epic view over the city...
