Member bio
Simone Browne is currently the Interim University Carillonist at the University of California, Berkeley, where she also studies law. Originally from Tucson, AZ, Simone was introduced to the carillon at the University of Chicago, where she joined its Guild of Carillonneurs and studied with Joey Brink. In 2018, she performed at summer carillon internships in both Chicago and Luray, Virginia.

After graduating from UChicago in 2019, Simone spent a year living in Chernivtsi, Ukraine through the Fulbright program, teaching English and visiting Ukrainian carillons.

With the support of the Belgian American Educational Foundation (BAEF), she studied under Eddy Mariën, Koen Van Assche, Tom Van Peer, and Dina Verheyden at the Royal Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium from 2020-2022. She graduated “with great distinction” in June 2021, then remained at the Carillon School for an additional post-graduation specialization year. In 2023, she spent several months studying with Geert D’hollander as a Carillon Fellow at Bok Tower Gardens.

Simone is currently a member of the Berkeley Law Class of 2026. She researches carillon culture, serves on the GCNA Bulletin Committee, and enjoys learning languages in her spare time. She has performed recitals on carillons in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Lithuania, Denmark, the US, and Ukraine.
