We have a 3 Octave Handbell choir called the Jubilee Bells. We begin in the fall as a 2 octave choir because of snowbirds. But just before Christmas we have enough ringers for 3 octaves. Because of memorials from families of deceased members we have been able to purchase brand new handbells and melody chimes.
The Jubilee Bells play about 5 or 6 times throughout the year. The ringers will play the introit and other special music during the church service. This past Christmas we took our bells and chimes "on the road" and performed at a nursing home. It was much appreciated by the folks and our ringers.
The Jubilee Bells rehearse at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays from mid September through May. There is time off intermittently during those months. Anyone can join but a knowledge of rhythms and notes is a plus.
