 Bells of the Sound
Shirley Lindberg, Director

Bells of the Sound returns to Saint Andrew's for its 2017 Christmas Concert, Peace on Earth! 
"Peace on earth, goodwill to men!" was the message the angels brought to the shepherds in the fields on that first Christmas Eve. This is the very essence of the Christmas spirit that fills us this time of year. Bells of the Sound will share this message throughout the Puget Sound this Christmas season, as we present "Peace on Earth", featuring traditional carols and songs of peace from around the world. We invite you to join us on this goodwill journey as we ring in the holiday spirit!
 
Bells of the Sound is not your typical handbell choir. Under the direction of Shirley Lindberg, this talented group of auditioned musicians is a dynamic force in the handbell world - encouraging composers to create new works and advancing this exciting instrument into the mainstream of entertainment. Bells of the Sound has been pioneering handbell artistry and excellence in the Puget Sound area since 1989. Established to give handbell directors an opportunity to ring, Bells of the Sound has matured into a community ensemble dedicated to musical excellence and exciting performance. The group now owns and performs on one of the largest handbell sets in the United States, which includes 7 plus octaves of Malmark handbells and 5 octaves of Malmark Choirchimes. Their four released CDs - Ring We Now Noël, Signatures, The Sound of Christmas and Just Jazz - demonstrate the range of the group and the instrument and feature not only arrangements of well-known tunes, but many original handbell compositions written for contests the group has hosted over the past 12 years. Bells of the Sound will give you a whole new perspective of handbells that you won't want to miss!
