About the Carillonneur:
Lisa Lonie was appointed Princeton University Carillonneur in 2012. She is also the Carillonneur at St. Thomas’ Church, Whitemarsh as well as the Lead Carillonneur on the oldest carillon (1882) in North America located at the Church of the Holy Trinity (Rittenhouse Square) in Philadelphia. She is a carillonneur member of the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America (GCNA), former chair of the Examinations Committee, and has served on its Board of Directors.

Lisa began her carillon studies as a teenager with Frank Law, carillonneur at the Washington Memorial National Carillon in Valley Forge, PA and continued with Frank DellaPenna, Mr. Law’s successor.
Known for her musical wit and creative programming, Ms. Lonie is a frequent recitalist throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe. She has performed in internationally acclaimed carillon festivals, as well as for several national congresses of the GCNA, as guest carillonneur for the 2002 National Convention of the American Guild of Organists (AGO) in Philadelphia, and as an invited recitalist at the World Carillon Federation Congress in Aschaffenburg, Germany. She also is one of the featured performers on the CD recording, Princeton Carillon Class of 1892 and on the NBC television special “Ringing in the Holidays at Longwood Gardens.”
Lisa studied piano with Nancy Turner of Philadelphia and is a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University with dual degrees in German and Economics.
