For the second time in the history of Marquette’s carillon, the voorslag, or time strike, will change on Tuesday, Jan. 31. The carillon’s time strike is a short, unique melody played automatically every 15 minutes to indicate each quarter hour.
This new melody, called Joan of Arc, was composed by Mark Konewko, university carillonneur, as part of the Joan of Arc-inspired project Harken to My Voice.
Below is the historical timeline of Marquette’s time strikes:
1967 to 2012 Westminster
2013 to 2016 St. Michael
2017 Joan of Arc
