Frank DellaPenna appeared last night (8/14/12) on America's Got Talent with his 4 ton Carillon "Cast in Bronze". The judges were not very kind to him, but they had no appreciation of the instrument. Everyone may remember Frank used to play the one at Valley Forge Memorial Chapel but he takes this one on the road and performs. He performs incognito, though, dressed completely in black, wearing a bronze mask. An article appeared in the Daily Local today about Frank and his carillon.
