St. Stephen's Church, SewickleyIt’s finally show time! We’ve been hard at work since January preparing our concert series for you, and we’re excited to present Canticles & Carillons beginning at 3:00 this Sunday, May 3 at St. Stephen’s Church in Sewickley. Get your tickets before Sunday and save $3!

Canticles & Carillons is an exciting program filled with some of the all-time great hits of sacred music arranged for handbells, plus a surprise or two we know you’ll enjoy. We’re especially proud to play a gorgeous arrangement of Brahms’ How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place from A German Requiem, as well as demonstrating some major show-stoppers like Dean Wagner’s Te Deum and Fred Gramann’s Prelude on Herzliebster Jesu. And we have some beautiful quiet moments as well, particularly with a pair of arrangements by Stanley Leonard, the distinguished retired principal timpanist of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

We’d like to share some of our joy for this program with a classic: Beethoven’s Hymn to Joy. We recorded this video at a special rehearsal we held last month with donors in attendance.

We look forward to seeing you all at one of the upcoming concerts! Next Friday we’re thrilled to be playing our first full performance at Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church, our home base for the past 5 years, for a free concert with a goodwill offering. Then Saturday, May 9 we’re returning to Washington, PA to the lovely and historic First Presbyterian Church, 1793. Finally, on May 15 we’ll put on our first stand-alone concert in the Oakland neighborhood at Church of the Ascension.
