Handbell Choir – Emily Reep – Click for Biography

The Adult Bell Choir consists of members ages 12 and up. The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the church naveRehearsals begin in September and go through mid May 2017.  We do not practice over the summer.  We currently have 16 members ringing five octaves of handbells and four octaves of handchimes. The choir usually plays for services once per month and often accompanies psalms, hymns, and vocal anthems. Members enjoy utilizing many different bell techniques and playing pieces which incorporate various instruments.

We have several openings in the choir.  Some of our faithful ringers have gone away to college, moved for new jobs, or are involved in marching band on our rehearsal nights.  If you are interested in joining, you will find a copy of the schedule on the bulletin board in the Springettsbury hallway or questions regarding the bell choir can be directed to Emily Reep.

The adult bell choir performed Antiphonal Fanfare by Jason Krug, November 6, All Saints Sunday.  The choir split into two groups to stretch our musicianship across the front of the nave .  It was an amazing performance!  We look forward to their next performance.
