Colonial English Handbell Ringers Perform at The Lyceum

Two Free Concerts Featuring Holiday Classics on December 18

Enjoy your favorite holiday music with the Colonial English Handbell Ringers at The Lyceum on Sunday, December 18.  The Colonial English Handbell Ringers, now in their 20th season, will give two performances with the first beginning at 2 p.m. and the second, a repeat performance, at 4 p.m.

This year’s program is “A Very Merry Christmas: Celebrating 20 Years with the Colonial English Handbell Ringers.” The free show features ten ringers in period costume playing a full five-octave set of nearly 80 handbells from the world-famous White Chapel Foundry in England.

The ringers will perform many of their all-time personal favorites and crowd-pleasers, including children’s classics like “Frosty the Snowman” and the original work, “A Carillon Christmas,” timeless holiday tunes like “Silver Bells” and “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow,” and original show-stoppers such as “Bell Talk” and “Three Carols From Three Countries.” As in years past, there will be an audience participation sing-a-long.

The Lyceum, Alexandria’s History Museum, is located at 201 South Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria. Limited free parking is available.

For more information, contact The Lyceum at 703.746.4994 or visit www.alexandriahistory.org.
