Concert Bells of Fort Worth Handbell Concert

Tuesday, May 20

Concert Bells of Fort Worth is an auditioned community ensemble of advanced handbell ringers whose broad repertoire, musicality and advanced range of ringing techniques have thrilled and delighted audiences across North Texas.

The theme for the concert is "Childhood Memories" which will include an arrangement of Camille Saint-Saëns' "Carnival of the Animals." "Childhood Memories" is about the soundtracks of our childhoods. No, not the Top 20 from a certain year, and maybe not even the songs you remember best now, but all the music that was such a part of your life it can lie forgotten for years--and then take you back in a second to a place and time before the burdens of adulthood. As children, there is a brief time when we live without genre: when classical music and swing and rock & roll and joke-songs are all in there somewhere, playing behind the movies of our lives. And as we discovered putting together this concert, a lot of that soundtrack is the same from generation to generation. 
 
The concert is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
