Handbells and chimes ring will in the holidays on Saturday, Dec. 3, when the Finger Lakes Bronze Handbell Ensemble returns to the Smith Opera House for “A Holiday Frolic.”
Under the direction of Judith Treisback of Geneva, sacred and secular carols from medieval to contemporary using a variety of sounds and techniques will be performed in The Smith’s acoustically superb auditorium.
Joining the Ensemble is the Lydian Winds Woodwind Quintet. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show.
Finger Lakes Bronze is a not-for-profit community handbell organization dedicated to promoting the musicality of handbells through performance and education. Founded in 2000, the group has performed throughout the Finger Lakes and hosts an annual techniques workshop for handbell directors and ringers. The variety of music played emphasizes original compositions for handbells and explores the various styles and sounds available.
Tickets will be available at the door; for details, call the box office at (315) 781-LIVE or visit http://www.thesmith.org.
