Virginia Handbell Consort
Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 7 p.m.
The Virginia Handbell Consort is comprised of auditioned musicians performing on over five octaves of Schulmerich bells, five and a half octaves of Melody Chimes, three octaves of Petit and Fritsen bells and other percussion instruments. Concert repertoire includes spectacular selections of secular, classical and sacred pieces which demonstrate a multitude of bell techniques currently being explored by composers. An all-time favorite of the Mildred McDaniel Concert Series-goer, the VHC will perform a Christmas program. Al Reese is the Musical Director and the VHC is a crowd-pleaser. Plan to arrive early to get a seat. The concert is free and open to the public. Contributions will be accepted to help support the Concert Series. A reception follows the concert.
