WCC Concert Bell Choir
We hope you’ll join us for Sounds on Oberlin’s next concert Sunday, January 13 at 3 p.m. in the Sanctuary as the Westminster Concert Bell Choir performs under the direction of Kathleen Ebling Shaw. Celebrating their 41st anniversary season, Westminster Concert Bell Choir is comprised of students performing on the largest range of handbells in the world. 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.
