Virginia Handbell Consort holds free concert at Williamsburg Presbyterian Church

Williamsburg Presbyterian Church is proud to welcome the Virginia Handbell Consort (VHC) for a concert of holiday favorites on Sunday, December 10 at 7:00 p.m.

VHC is an advanced community handbell ensemble, consisting of auditioned musicians from across Hampton Roads. They seek to advance the art of ringing through performances year-round, commissioning new music, and hosting workshops and seminars. The group recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary, over which time it has released seven recordings and traveled extensively. Holiday performances feature a mix of well-known seasonal pieces; both sacred and secular, exciting and introspective. Learn more about VHC at vhcbells.org.

"We are excited about returning to Williamsburg, to see old friends and introduce new acquaintances to the art of advanced handbell ringing," explains director Al Reese. "This season's concert features unique arrangements of many beloved carols and songs, including It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, a sparkling setting of Holly and the Ivy, and an imaginative composition written especially for VHC. We know everyone will leave with a smile on their face and a bounce in their step."

The free concert will be presented at Williamsburg Presbyterian Church at 215 Richmond Road. Questions: 757-229-4235 or visit mywpc.org
