Shoreline Ringers, a community handbell choir, will present a program of popular favorites, original handbell compositions, and classical transcriptions at a concert Saturday, May 20, at 4 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Essex, 6 Methodist Hill, Essex.
The Shoreline Ringers, directed by Jane Nolan, ring on five octaves of Malmark handbells and seven octaves of Malmark handchimes. The group rehearses in Ledyard and has ringers from all over eastern and central Connecticut. Shoreline Ringers was formed with a goal of developing the art of handbell ringing and educating audiences about this unique art form.
They have performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City as a part of the Christmas Time in the City concert, with Scott Haney and the Joy for the Kids Concert sponsored by WFSB Channel 3 in Hartford, and with the Coast Guard Band.
