The St. Olaf Handbell Choir, from St. Olaf College, will be performing a concert at First United Methodist Church (230 E. Skyline Pkwy, Duluth) at 7pm on Saturday, March 2. Admission is free but a freewill offering will be taken. This performance is part of their Winter Tour.
The premier ensemble of the college’s handbell program, the St. Olaf Handbell Choir is an auditioned group that performs for daily chapel and Sunday church services, student recitals, and an annual spring concert. In addition, they regularly perform off-campus at church services, retirement centers, and various concerts. They performed their first Kids' Concert in 2007 and enjoyed it so much that they have made it an annual event. Sixteen years ago, the group began touring—performing in many cities in Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa. They have participated in the critically acclaimed St. Olaf Christmas Festival.
The ensemble’s widely-varied program features original compositions and arrangements— everything from tangos to J.S. Bach, and a little jazz. A highlight will be the premier performance of "Fantasy," a fascinating work by student member Henry Rye. Another piece combines bells, vocal quartet, French horn, and piano. Ringer Katie Nail will solo on bell tree, and a handbell quartet will be performing as well.
The St. Olaf Handbell Choir was founded in 1983 under the direction of Robert Thompson, Professor of Organ. Since 1995 the program has been under the direction of Jill Mahr and has grown to include four handbell ensembles: Jill directs the St. Olaf Handbell Choir and the Chapel Ringers; the Manitou Handbell Choir and Valhalla Ringers are student-directed.
This rabble-rousing folk band, members Chris Hollister and Tony Petersen, and Chris Kopp…perform across the country...
Their first time here, no one left the place. These guys are slightly vaudevillian in their approach to the audience. They get everyone engaged and waiting for what may come next. One member of the crowd compared them to the Smothers Brothers of 70’s fame-firstly they are musicians, but there will be loads of jokes and stories. They play off each other, but watch it, you may unknowingly become part of the show!
