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 new Music Suite on the first floorRehearsals begin September 6, 2018 and go through mid May 2019.  There are no practices during the summer.  We currently have members ringing our full five octaves of handbells and four octaves of handchimes. The choir usually plays for services once per month and most major feast days of the church year.  The Bell Choir also often accompanies psalms, hymns, and vocal anthems. Members enjoy utilizing many different bell techniques and playing pieces which incorporate various instruments.

We have several vacancies that we need to fill in order to continue ringing our full 5-octave set of bells.  Students in 7th grade through adults are welcome to join. If you can keep a steady beat; and have any prior musical experience (even it was long ago), please consider giving bell choir a try.  If you are interested in joining or have questions regarding the bell choir, please contact Emily Reep.
