Handbell ringers at library
The Friends of the Jamestown Library are proud to present "Shoreline Ringers" on Sunday, May 20, at 3 p.m. in the library meeting hall.
Shoreline Ringers, Inc. is a community handbell choir, formed as a Connecticut non-profit corporation in September 2006. Their goals are to support the continued development of the art of handbell ringing and promote the ringing of handbells as a legitimate musical art form while educating audiences and increasing their knowledge and appreciation of handbell music through our concert performances. The ringers, some of whom direct other handbell choirs, have a variety of ringing experience, and have come together to learn a more advanced repertoire.
They highlight a variety of techniques and rhythms in their ringing and promise fun for all. The group strives to educate audiences in the beauty of handbells as they perform a wide variety of challenging music. The choir rings five octaves of Malmark handbells and five octaves of Malmark hand chimes.
