Stephen Brooks Knight has been Samford’s Resident Carillonneur for thirty-five years. Usually on Mondays and Thursdays at 4:30 p.m., but sometimes on other special occasions, Mr. Knight scales the heights of the Davis Library tower to delight our university (and the surrounding area of Homewood) with a recital on the Rushton Memorial Carillon. Mr. Knight has received numerous awards and honors, including the City of Mechelen Carillon Composition prize from the Royal Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium, and the Young Blind Composers Award from the National Federation of Music Clubs. He also received the Samuel P. Hayes Award from the Perkins School for the Blind and the Harry R. Wilson Award from Samford University.
The world is better because of the music of Stephen Knight.
