The Westminster Concert Bell Choir is composed of students of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey.
The ensemble uses 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 eleven pounds; the Choir also uses the large "Basso Profundo" aluminum-cast bells that are a new phenomenon in handbell ringing. The Choir supplements their handbell set with a six-octave set of Malmark Choirchime instruments from C2 to C8 - the widest range in existence.
Free admission. Reception to follow.
