Concert to feature handbell ensembles


Ring Them Bells!, an evening of handbells, is a first for the Saturdays at 7 at St. Andrew’s concert series.

The concert will be presented on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary of St. Andrew’s United Church in Chatham.

Bells Ablaze, consisting of 12 talented ringers, is an advanced invitational bell choir; and Bellissima Ringers is one of Canada’s most advanced handbell small ensembles.

The Bellissima Ringers handbell quartet, formed in London in 1997, enjoys a busy schedule of ringing. This quartet has performed at Guelph Fest, the Stratford Summer Music Festival, Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto and at many London churches and events.
