RING SARASOTA HANDBELL ENSEMBLE IN CONCERT AT SIESTA KEY CHAPEL
General Event Information
The area’s premier handbell ensemble, Ring Sarasota, will perform in concert at Siesta Key Chapel on Sunday, March 10 at 4:00 p.m. Siesta Key Chapel is located at 4615 Gleason Avenue Sarasota, FL 34242, (941) 349-1166. A $10 donation is requested.
Founded in 2010, Ring Sarasota presents concerts that appeal to everyone. The auditioned advanced handbell ringers perform a lively program featuring the Classics, works from Bizet, Sousa, Strauss, and an original transcription by Ring Sarasota’s director Rick Holdsworth of Gustav Holst’s “Jupiter,” the “Bringer of Jollity” from “The Planets.”
Ring Sarasota utilizes five octaves of Malmark Handbells and four and a half octaves of Malmark Choirchimes to create a symphony of sound with special effects mimicking the piccolo, percussion, chimes, even the Tibetan singing bowl. Their music has been described as an inspirational mix of muscle and melody.
The group recently recorded its first CD.
