A founding member of the Millennium Carillon Foundation, Seidel passed away on July 28
The 2020 Tuesday evening Summer Recital Series at the Naperville Millennium Carillon will conclude with a concert on Tuesday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. to honor former Naperville resident Chuck Seidel, who recently passed away. Former City Carillonneur Wylie Crawford and current City Carillonneur Tim Sleep will present the concert.
“Chuck was a founding member of the Millennium Carillon Foundation and the driving force behind the project,” said Tim Sleep. “He was the Carillon’s strongest supporter and kept in touch every couple of weeks even after he retired and moved to Florida. The concert will feature some of his favorite music, including ‘All Through The Night,’ ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow,’ and pieces by Bach, Strauss, and Joplin.”
The hour long program will take place rain or shine, unless there is inclement weather, such as lightning or high winds. For weather cancellation information, check https://www.napervilleparks.org/cancellations.

In addition, the music can be heard on the Riverwalk on both sides of the river and in the adjacent parks and parking lots.
