Bells of the Sound is not your typical handbell choir.
Under the direction of Shirley Lindberg, this talented group of musicians is a dynamic force in the handbell world - encouraging composers to create new works and advancing this exciting instrument into the mainstream of entertainment.
They perform on 7 1/2 octaves of Malmark handbells, 6 octaves Malmark Choirchimes, 5 octaves of Whitechapel handbells and 3 octaves of Petit & Fritsen handbells - one of the largest sets in the country.
