Traditional carillons in North America:
concert class, in sequence

The table below is an index to the 120 North American traditional carillons of 4 octaves or more (concert class), in order by the year in which they first attained that size.  Instruments reaching concert class in the same year are in order by the city name, and share the same sequence number (first column).

The three parts of the "Initial" column show the year in which each instrument attained concert class, how that happened (as a Complete installation, as the Extension of a smaller instrument to its present size, as the Foundation of an instrument which was later enlarged, or as an Intermediate enlargement of a smaller instrument which was later enlarged further), and the number of bells which it had at that time.  For instruments which were later enlarged or had some bells replaced, a Final size is also shown.  The two instruments of this class which later lost their traditional keyboard are tagged "non-trad".
