|Handbell Festival Set to Ring in Spring|
Farmers Branch, Dallas, TX – Two handbell concerts will feature performances by dozens of local bell choirs at the “Festival of Handbells” March 20 and 27. The Greater Dallas Handbell Association and the Brookhaven College Fine Arts Department are offering two handbell festivals for area advanced and intermediate choirs with each festival culminating in a massed ringing concert at 3:30 p.m. in the Brookhaven College gymnasium.
The festivals are all-day events for ringers and directors. Choirs begin their practices at 9 a.m. in the morning with David Davidson, an internationally recognized handbell massed ringing director.
The first festival, March 20, is geared toward advanced choirs and the March 27 festival is for intermediate handbell choirs. Both free concerts will include special performances by the Brookhaven College Handbell Ensemble, directed by Bonnie Riddle.
