Heidelberg Concert Handbells
Heidelberg’s twelve-member Concert Handbell Choir rings six octaves of handbells as well as five octaves of choir-chimes. Since 1980, we have entertained many audiences in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding tri-state area with a varied repertoire of sacred and secular music.
Our reputation earned us the honor of performing with four other advanced handbell choirs in the Masteringers Concert series, and led us to Washington, D.C. where we entertained for the White House Christmas tours. We have performed at Christkindlemarkt, at several AGO (American Guild of Organists) events, and at the historic Riverside Church in New York City. In addition to managing a busy concert schedule, the Concert choir has completed many promotional recordings for Shawnee Press, and has released two CD's, “A Christmas Journey” and "Moon of Wintertime".
The Heidelberg Concert Handbell Choir, under the direction of Jackie Grove, is part of the music program at Heidelberg Union Church in Slatington, PA.
