PHILADELPHIA HANDBELL ENSEMBLE
December 4, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble, a community ensemble comprised of auditioned, advanced-level handbell ringers from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, was established in November 2003. It is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and a member of the Handbell Musicians of America. The Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble is also honored to have been accepted onto the juried artist roster of Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour.
Musically, Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble appreciates various styles and moods. Its repertoire spans original compositions, transcriptions of classical literature, and arrangements from a wide array of musical genres. An advanced range of ringing techniques allows the Ensemble to move beyond the traditional handbell sound and redefines the character of a single instrument, whether it’s through percussive stopped sounds or poignant echoes or a shimmering decrescendo.
“A rare find among handbell ensembles … musically engaging and a special combination of inspiration and education.” ~ John Sall, Director, Abington Symphony Orchestra
