The handbell choir is a component of the Choir Ministries at the Episcopal Church of the Ascension. Handbells offer the opportunity to provide an additional “voice” to the worship service in close collaboration with the Adult Choir. The goal of this ministry is to provide monthly performances as solo and/or accompaniment to the Adult Choir. The handbell choir meets to learn occasional pieces for special services.
Prior musical experience or the ability to read music is not necessary. Those members without musical experience are taught general sight reading techniques with attention to understanding rhythm structure and notation. The Handbell Choir is always looking for committed part and full-time members.
