Search Niagara Falls Ontario

The Rainbow Tower Carillon is located at the at the Canadian entrance of the Rainbow International Bridge on Falls Avenue. The Carillon is 165 feet tall and consists of a set of 55 tuned bells hung within this tower. The bells were cast and tuned by the John Taylor & Company of Loughborough, England. Bell castings began in 1941 but was interrupted by World War II. Work resumed in 1945 and was completed in 1947. The music range of this carillon is one of the broadest in the world. It covers a musical of four and a half octaves chromatic omitting the lowest semi-tone. Although a bell sounds one note, there are five distinct tones in every carillon bell. The bells cost $48,000 to make. The inaugural recital of the Rainbow Tower Carillon took place on July 1st 1948.
