The JuBELLation Handbell Choir presents its annual Holiday Handbell Concert on Sunday, Dec. 14, at 4 p.m. in the sanctuary at Missoula's First United Methodist Church.
The concert will include a wide variety of music, including "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "West Indies Carol," "The Holly and the Ivy," "Lo, How a Rose," and "Parade of the Tin Soldiers."
In addition to the large handbell choir, concert-goers will hear guest musicians Pam Hillygus, violin, and Katrina Eudy, piano. The smaller handbell quartet will perform Pachelbel's "Canon," "Gloria" and an unusual version of "Pat-a-Pan."
JuBELLation includes members of the church's original handbell choir that began in 1996. Each year, the choir welcomes back members that have been away or adds new musicians to the group. Some members have not necessarily played handbells before, but join to make music while having fun and fellowship.
