Chancel Bells

Chancel Bell Choir

The five handbell choirs of Collegiate United Methodist Church/Wesley Student Center will present an hour-long concert at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, April 13, in the church sanctuary, 2622 Lincoln Way in Ames. Musical selections will include familiar melodies such as “Washington Post March,” arrangements based on hymn tunes, and original compositions for handbells.

Handbells have been part of the music ministry at Collegiate/Wesley since the early 1960s. Currently the handbell program involves about 60 ringers, including sixth graders through senior citizens.
Admission to the concert is free and the public is invited. Donations will be accepted at the exits.
