Each year of the handbell choir’s existence, handbell music and handbell musicians have been changing and developing. Sharing these developments in a concert is indeed a joy.

For one thing, handbell music is no longer limited to church music. Several composers now write music specifically for this beautiful instrument. The concert program will include sizzling, jazzy, and swingy selections, sensitive and expressive melodies, and a few surprises!The techniques employed in bringing the music to life have greatly expanded beyondjust ringing.  And, in addition to being more interesting for audiences, the new music and new techniques have attracted a high caliber of musicians.

“It’s an extrication challenge,” said Jean Richardson who is helping Aidan Ryan and Calvin Cooke to organize the event that will take place May 27 and 28 at the Perth Fairgrounds from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

There will be team scenarios and local scrap yards have donated more than two dozen cars to crush, but they’re still looking for old cars if you have one or two to spare. Tax receipts will be given.

Teams will be judged on their ability to perform, and team work, communication, Richardson said.

“There are three opportunities to perform including with limited tools, unlimited heavy hydraulics and rapid – meaning they will be talking to “patients” who will be on the verge of passing out.

The Challenge will be limited to 15 teams. 6 people per team. All teams competing in the event will be registered with TERC. Visit www.terccanada.ca for details.
