Food For Thought: From Bell Tower to Concert Hall: The Evolution of Handbells

Your Speaker:  Trinity Professor Diane Persellin, Ed.D.

What do ancient Chinese rulers, Benedictine monks, Big Ben, British pubs, early churches, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Barnum & Bailey all have in common? They all played an important role in the evolution of modern-day handbells. In this presentation, enjoy an overview of the fascinating history of enormous tower bells including our Trinity tower bells, as well as much smaller handheld bells from across the globe. To conclude the presentation, the Trinity Handbell Ensemble will perform festive holiday music on over 200 bells.
