Daniel Kerry Kehoe was appointed the first Carillonneur of Trinity College in 1982. His carillon career of over twenty-five years began in September 1974 while a student at Trinity. He initially studied with carillonneur Raymond Keldermans in his home town of Springfield, Illinois. College summers were spent as a performing tourguide at the Rees Carillon in Springfield, where he has twice returned to perform in the International Carillon Festival.

In 1978 he studied briefly with Mr. Piet van den Broek at the Royal Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium. Since then Mr. Kehoe has performed extensively on towers throughout New England and the eastern seaboard. He has recorded two albums on the carillon, Summer Sounds at Seven and A Carillon Christmas, and is a Carillonneur member of the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America.

Mr. Kehoe is a public speaker and president of Bigfoot Laboratories, Inc., a software company. He is also a lieutenant with his town's volunteer ambulance on which he has served for twenty-two years.

He and his wife Allyson have two daughters, both of whom are learning to play the carillon.
