Ever wanted to try your hand at hand bells? Always harbored a secret desire to ring? After all, you only need to learn two notes! Now your dream has come true!
Christ Episcopal Church of Kennesaw, (CEC), has come into a four octave set of English Hand bells and is offering ringing opportunities for both kids and adults in its new bell choir, “Pumping Bronze! ”
At this time, both adults and kids – 6th grade and up – are ringing together in a 3 octave team, performing for special events and holy days at CEC and with our chimes at Wal-Mart for the Salvation Army Bell Ringers during the Christmas season with the Marietta Golden K Kiwanis.
The dream is to gather enough adults and kids to form two bell teams, or one 4-octave team with a rehearsal every week. Pumping Bronze has been ringing both as a team and as a 2 to 4 ringer malleted bell tree. We’ve also chimed at church and out in the community and rung weaves as duets.
We are Semper Gumby (always flexible), interested in new ringers and excited about making music together. Contact our Ringmaster Deb at 678 777 9027 or email@example.com and come join us – with bells on! (Sorry – couldn’t resist!)
