Hershey Handbell Ensemble Concert – A Celebration of Our 10 Years, April 26

The Hershey Handbell Ensemble will present a concert on April 26, 7 p.m. at the Grace United Church of Christ, 1947 New Holland Pike, Lancaster.

In 2004, this auditioned, community handbell ensemble, based in south-central Pennsylvania, was formed to fulfill the need for an auditioned community ensemble comprised of persons able to play advanced literature, interested in advancing the art of handbell ringing through education and performance while uniting people through this musical art. The fourteen-member group under the direction of Dr. Shawn Gingrich performs on seven octaves of Malmark Handbells, Handchimes, and other assorted instruments.

The concert celebrates the ensemble’s tenth anniversary season and will feature favorite selections from each season along with the premiere of a new composition titled “Awakening” which was commissioned by the ensemble in honor of their anniversary. The ensemble’s popular selection of CD recordings will be available for sale.

This appearance by the Hershey Handbell Ensemble is part of Grace UCC’s ten year anniversary celebration as an Open and Affirming congregation and will assist the Memorial Bells of Grace UCC to expand and promote their new bell program. A suggested donation of $10 a person will be collected and light refreshments will be served after the Ensemble’s performance.
