“Clarion” denotes a medieval trumpet with a clear, ringing tone; the clarion call is a bright fanfare from the trumpet, an instrument that plays a vital part in all types of music. The “Spirit of Music” bronze sculpture in The Clarion lobby will be an impressive angelic figure with clarion aloft, calling all to the appreciation of music. The word clarion comes to our language through Middle English and Old French from the Latin clarus, meaning clear.
