Ring in the holiday season with a special concert at the Osolo Library.
At 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5 the Resounding Glory handbell choir from the Elkhart Seventh Day Adventist Christian School will hold their first public performance at Osolo, focusing on holiday music.
“Handbells have a unique sound, you don’t hear it frequently and it’s a team sport, it’s just beautiful,” EACS principal Catherine Pfeifle said.
According to Pfeifle, the group is in their first year. She said they formed after the school rented bells last year and the students enjoyed playing them so much they wanted to form a handbell choir.
“I rented a two-octave set of handbells, they played them, they played them beautifully,” she said. “The students wanted to play handbells again this year.”
The group is comprised of the small private school’s five students, former students and the school’s former music director, Pfeifle said.
The choice to make their first public performance at the Osolo Branch was easy, she said, because they are next door neighbors to the library and utilize it for lessons.
“We go over to that library once a week,” Pfeifle said.
The group has performed at their home church and another church but Pfeifle said they are excited to perform for a new audience and bring some holiday music to the area.
