Organ and Carillon

The Robert Carr Chapel organ was built by the Ross King Organ Company of Fort Worth. In 1979 it replaced the original two-keyboard, fourteen-stop Reuter organ. The King Organ, valued at $295,000, has three keyboards and thirty-six stops.

The chapel carillon, built by the Cincinnati firm Verdin, was installed in 1984 replacing an earlier carillon provided by Robert Carr. The Verdin carillon plays the short measures of the TCU alma mater before striking each hour during the daytime and is a beloved and well known sound on the TCU campus.
