The second group of handbell pieces on the program will include seasonal favorites arranged for handbells including three impressions on “This Is My Father’s World”, “Thanksgiving Bells,” and “Count Your Blessings.”
The centerpiece of the brass quintet’s repertoire will be Kurt Weill’s “Threepenny Opera Suite.” The brass will also perform “Scherzo” by Cheetham, “Stardust” by Hoagy Carmichael and a special arrangement of Erik Satie’s Gymnopedie No. 1 featuring a tuba solo.
