On Tuesday, Valerie, her mother, her cousin, and I had the opportunity to visit Michigan State University's Beaumont Tower to see the carillon being played. While not a Spartan fan, I did appreciate the musical abilities of the player as he rung out the MSU fight song, which you can see and hear below.
