Brookhaven College Handbell Ensemble to Perform at “Festival of Bells”

Brookhaven College Handbell Ensemble logoFARMERS BRANCH/ DALLAS • Once again the “Festival of Bells,” will gather choirs from around the region for two full days of ringing, March 19 and April 9, at Brookhaven College. The Brookhaven College Handbell Ensemble is just one of the choirs scheduled to take part in the festival. The Greater Dallas Handbell Association coordinates two festivals each spring, one for intermediate and one for advanced handbell choirs that culminate in a mass ringing concert each day at 3:30 p.m.

Each festival is an all-day event for both ringers and directors. Michael Helman, handbell director and composer, will direct both events this year. The Dallas Handbell Association has commissioned Helman to compose a piece to be presented at the festivals this year. The bell concerts are free and open to the public. The Brookhaven College Gymnasium, Building T, houses the festivals and the concerts.

For more information about the Brookhaven College Handbell Ensemble, please contact Bonnie Riddle, director, at 972-247-5984 or the Brookhaven College School of the Arts at 972-860-4730.
