Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ will host the Penobscot Bay Ringers, a community handbell choir based in Camden, Maine, as they present "Bells by the Bay" on May 15 at 4 pm. The hour-long concert will feature a variety of familiar hymns and several original handbell pieces. Debra Hall will play a solo. The group performs on five octaves of Malmark handbells and Choirchimes®, delighting audiences with a full orchestral sound.
Nancy Duncan, Broad Bay Church Pastor, says, “We are honored to bring such a skilled handbell choir to Waldoboro. Given the acoustics of the church, the quality and number of bells, and the skill of the ringers, I anticipate a stunning performance. We offer the concert to the community as an opportunity to pause, gather together, and listen as the bells resonate throughout the historic sanctuary.
As is our tradition, there is no set admission charge; the church relies on donations at the door to fund the concert.”
Founded in 2008, Penobscot Bay Ringers share their love of handbells/handchimes and musical performance throughout Midcoast Maine and beyond. For more information regarding the Penobscot Bay Ringers, visit www.penobscotbayringers.me.
