The concert includes traditional Christmas carols such as God Rest You Merry Gentleman and I Wonder as I Wander; Christmas songs such as Holly Jolly Christmas, Feliz Navidad, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and Believe from the movie The Polar Express.

All the pieces in the concert showcase the wide range of beautiful music that can be played on handbells and hand chimes.

BELLS OF THE BAY BACKGROUND

The ringers in Bells of the Bay are a diverse group of talented musicians united by a passion for performing, promoting and advancing the musical and visual art of handbell music. Their mission is twofold — to present high quality handbell concerts that inspire, educate and entertain; and to present educational programs that recruit  non ringers to play bells, help current ringers learn new ringing techniques and improve their current ringing techniques and encourage churches/organizations to launch new or relaunch dormant bell choirs.  Bells of the Bay is deeply grateful to St. Phillips Episcopal Church in Quantico Maryland, which has allowed Bells of the Bay to serve as the permanent curator of donated handbells at  St. Phillips.
