Dec. 14, 2016: The annual Christmas Handbell Concert will be held at The Reformed Church of Bronxville on Sunday, December 18. The performance will begin at 4:00 pm. Admission is free.

Held in the main sanctuary of the church, three handbell choirs--the Concert Ringers (adults), the Kirk Ringers (eighth to twelfth grades), and the Whitechapel Ringers (seventh grade)--will combine to lead a beautiful handbell processional down the center and side aisles of the sanctuary, ringing in the beginning of the annual Christmas Handbell Concert. 

Director Lee J. Corbett stated that this marks the thirtieth year the Concert Ringers have been performing. "During the year," she added, "we perform at nursing homes throughout Westchester and the Bronx, hopefully bringing enjoyment to the lives of those who might be shut in."
