Capella Bells for youth and adults rehearses on Thursdays from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Choir Room. You do not need previous handbell experience to ring with us, but it helps to have some music reading ability.
We ring five octaves of Mallmark handbells and play music of up to AGEHR level 5. Capella Bells give several musical offerings in worship each year between September and May. Almost without exception, these include Lessons and Carols on the third Sunday of Advent, Christmas Eve, and Holy Week/Easter.
Our director is long-time First Presby member Kathy Lynch. Some Capella Bell ringers have been ringing for decades; others just started playing bells last year. You do not have to be a member of First Presby to ring with us, but it helps to have a sense of humor because we have a great deal of fun.
We’ve got gloves that will fit you–come join us! To offer your gifts as part of the Capella Bells, contact director Kathy Lynch through the church office or speak to her after worship on Sunday morning.
