Cast in Bronze is the only musical act in the world that features the carillon, a medieval musical instrument consisting of 35 full-size Netherlands bells with a total weight of 4-tons. The bells are played from a mechanical keyboard in the European style using fists and feet and Cast in Bronze is the only mobile carillon in the world.

Creating the hauntingly beautiful music is Frank DellaPenna, who is a Master-Carillonneur graduate of the French Carillon School in Douai, France.

Cast in Bronze has been invited to perform for both Pope John Paul II and the Presidential Inauguration, and has performed at Walt Disney World’s Epcot in Orlando, Florida for the Christmas season. The music of Cast in Bronze has also been heard on radio, at music and Renaissance Festivals in the United States, on television including a special Christmas Eve performance on the NBC Today Show and at Alice Cooper’s Christmas Pudding Benefit Concert.
