Hand Bell Concert

Sunday evening we went to the Denver Botanic Garden's Blossoms of Light.
We went right to the building where the concert was going to be and saw these beautiful poinsettias.
My favorite color-PINK!
This group of high school teens was one of five from a church in Colorado Springs. The youngest ones start in elementary school. They played for 45 minutes and then did a repeat performance for another crowd. They are so talented!!

There were five octaves and hand chimes, too.

The largest bell weighs 16 pounds!
LOW C, two octaves down from middle C.
Vacation is mighty nice~got lots of cleaning done and wrapping of lots of little things to put in 19 stockings for Christmas Eve. Santa Zach is going to be a very busy elf!

It has been a while since I heard in person handbell music. It is such a melodious sound that it chills me.
Brings back nice memories.
What a sweet treat to hear this music especially this time of year. May you have a delightful Holiday break from school.

God bless,
