WCC Concert Bell Choir  

Celebrating its 41st anniversary season, the Westminster Concert Bell Choir is comprised of students at Westminster Choir College. Hailed for its virtuosity, the ensemble performs on the largest range of handbells in the world - 8 octaves, from C1 to C9. Many of the bells are made of bronze and range in weight from four ounces to 11 pounds; the Choir also uses the large "Basso Profundo" aluminum-cast bells that are a new phenomenon in handbell ringing.
