Recent Concert Playlists

Playing the chimes

Did you enjoy a recent concert, but didn't recognize all of the songs? Click on the links below to view playlists from the past week.

As a nod to tradition, the chimesmasters play the Cornell Changes, affectionately known as the Jennie McGraw Rag to begin each day. This piece was originally requested by the first Cornell President Andrew D. White. The midday concert concludes with the Alma Mater, and the day ends with the Cornell Evening Song (which shares its tune with the German carol Tannenbaum). These songs are not listed below because their placement is the same within each concert. Composers are listed when known.
