Velocity Handbell Ensemble

 

The Velocity Handbell Ensemble brings its 10th- anniversary revival of their Vintage & Vogue concept concert to Pioneer on May 19.

Whether you like classical or contemporary, this concert will have something for you. Featuring standards from Rossini, Faure?, Pachelbel, Holst, and Bach, along with original works for handbells, this concert will include full- choir selections from the original Vintage & Vogue CD and a world premiere commission.

Velocity is a community handbell ensemble in California’s San Francisco Bay Area.  A non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, Velocity is dedicated to moving the artistry of handbells towards musical excellence with a high standard of performance.  Formed in 2001 as a small ensemble, Velocity has at the heart of its mission statement the words “have fun!” Velocity has continually astounded its audiences, first with its ability to play up to six octaves of handbells with six ringers, and more recently in configurations from two to eleven ringers.

The Pioneer performance will be at 3 p.m., Sunday, May 19. Admission is $10. Velocity includes our own Angie Barbosa, director of Pioneer’s new handbell choir.

Suggested Donation – $10 at the door
