Iowa Lakes Handbell Choir to Perform

April 12, 2013

The Iowa Lakes Community College Handbell Choir will present a free concert for area residents. On Sunday, April 21, the public is invited to attend the performance which will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 3501 Hill Avenue, in Spirit Lake.
The Iowa Lakes Community College Handbell Choir is an ensemble which performs on a 5 octave range, from C3 to C8, of Schulmerich handbells. The bells are made of bronze and range in weight from four ounces to 10 pounds. The Choir also supplements its handbells with a five-octave set of handchimes.
The program covers a wide variety of music using many different handbell techniques from the singing bowl to gyro effect. Students from within the handbell choir will also be soloing on flute and various percussive instruments.
