Ring in the season at the Upper Valley Ringers Holiday Concert!
This year’s Holiday Program features lively arrangements of familiar favorites, and a few surprises that will surely delight listeners.
Bell choirs are like a team sport – each musician has to play at the right time to create the full sound, and practice makes perfect. It’s as interesting to watch as to listen. And handbells, with their amazing overtones, need to be heard live to be appreciated.
One selection on the Upper Valley Ringers Holiday Concert program will feature Jo Shute on handbell tree with the ringers on chimes. Handbell trees are a unique approach to handbell ringing that involves mounting the bells on a specialized stand, allowing them to be played by a single ringer. Unlike traditional handbell ringing, where each ringer holds and plays one or two bells, a handbell tree enables a single musician to perform multiple bells simultaneously.
Plenty of free parking. Freewill offering to benefit Enfield Shaker Museum. Invite your family and friends to join you for this festive holiday event.
Doors will open at 6:00 pm. Come early to enjoy a display of international Nativity Scenes (in the former La Salette Chapel). Hot chocolate will be served.
