This Friday, April 24 at 7:30 PM, we have the privilege of welcoming the Hershey Handbell Ensemble, a group of skilled bell choir players from throughout south central Pennsylvania. This fifteen member group, under the direction of Dr. Shawn Gingrich, performs on seven octaves of handbells, handchimes, and other assorted instruments. In addition to the performance, there
will be explanations and demonstrations of the various bells and instruments used, the compositions played, and the coordination of the group itself. There will also be time for your questions as well. Hershey Handbell Ensemble is committed to advancing the art of handbell ringing through education and performance while uniting people of various ages and backgrounds through the musical arts. The Ensemble will also have a selection of popular CD recordings available for purchase at the concert. Invite family and friends, as well as musicians from other churches for this very special evening.
