Free tickets are now available at the museum’s information desk.

The Utah Valley Handbell Ringers is a volunteer organization and practices together weekly with the goal of producing the highest quality music possible and sharing their incredible sound with people everywhere.

r

Director Karen Eskew-Wyllie began playing the bells years ago in Florida. After moving to Springville in 1991, she became director of a small church handbell group which eventually became the Utah Valley Handbell Ringers. Over the years, the group has grown in both size and expertise to produce outstanding music at each concert.

r

Cast of bronze and aluminum, the bells are tuned to a single note. When rung, they produce beautiful melodies. Bells have been created the same way for hundreds of years. The molten bronze is poured into a sand mold and after cooling, the sand is removed to expose something that looks vaguely like a bell. Placed on the lathering table, the bell starts to take shape as layer after layer of metal is carefully removed from the inside and outside of the bell. Then tuning begins. The ringers must wear gloves to protect the delicate metal surface because once damaged, a bell must be melted down and recast.

r

On Jan. 17, 2016, the Sunday Concert Series will present Clive Romney, a Pearl Award-winning recording producer, composer, songwriter, storyteller, arranger, teacher and performer and a 42-year veteran of the music business. Romney plays guitar, mandolin, banjo, accordion and various ethnic instruments.
