Coming in December to Kent Lutheran Church, the BELLS OF THE SOUND. The group is a dynamic force in the handbell world, advancing handbells into the mainstream of entertainment and encouraging composers to create new works for this provocative, exhilarating instrument.
Established to give handbell directors in the Puget Sound area an opportunity to ring, Bells of the Sound has since matured into a community ensemble dedicated to musical excellence and the promotion of handbells through exciting performance. The group now performs on one of the largest sets of handbells in the United States including 7-1/2 octaves of Malmark handbells, 5 octaves Malmark Choirchimes, 3 1/2 octaves of Petit & Fritsen handbells, and 2 octaves of Silver Melody Bells. The KLC concert is Saturday, December 8th at 7PM.
Adult tickets, $20.00 at the door. Doors open at 6:30PM.
The Auburn Symphony presents Chamber Music from Around the World. This concert celebrates composers Beethoven, Britten, and Loeffler and samples all the different textures and sounds they have to offer. Loeffler enjoyed a performing and playing career in the United States. His work highlights the rich tones of the Viola and Oboe in a unique and little used combination of instruments. The Britten blends the Oboe's sounds with strings in a fantastic world of color and rhythm. The Beethoven Trio op. 1 No. 1 is an early and beautiful work. As part of Kent Lutheran's Chancel Arts concert series, seating is limited and first come first served. Doors open at 6:30pm.
