Westminster Concert Bell Choir Performs in Bellingham on May 27
The Westminster Concert Bell Choir, conducted by Kathleen Ebling Shaw, will present a concert titled “Tintinnabulation,” on Tuesday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Saint Brendan Parish in Bellingham, Mass. The event is co-presented by St. Gregory Conservatory of Sacred Music. A free-will offering will be accepted during the performance. The program takes its title from Edgar Allan Poe’s poem The Bells, which describes the sounds of four different kinds of bells and the times and places where they might be heard. The ensemble’s 2014 New England tour repertoire will feature original compositions and arrangements of familiar works that highlight the range and versatility of handbells and choir chimes. The 16-member Westminster Concert Bell Choir is composed of undergraduate and graduate students of Westminster Choir College and Rider University. This year celebrates the 36th year of the handbell curriculum at Westminster Choir College, which was the first institution in the world to develop such a program. Hailed for its virtuosity, the Westminster Concert Bell Choir uses the largest range of handbells in the world.
