Handbells: as easy as one-two-three!

2016 july bell choir practice P1070553Just count one-two-three!

Do you have a secret longing to play handbells? For the handbell, being able to count is the more important than for any other instrument. It is almost like a doing a synchronized swimming with instruments in one’s hands/arms. But it is not as hard as it looks, as long as you can count 1-2-3.

This Sunday, July 24, a bell choir quartet will provide music for our 10 a.m. worship service and everyone is also invited to try out the handbells after the service.

PUMC’s bell choir is led by Hyosang Park, who just happens to be a nationally known handbell artist.  She invites you to the Sunday, July 24 open house. She soothes your doubts: “Maybe you always wanted to try, but you could not because of time, or you were afraid to make mistakes, you were intimidated, or you thought you were not a musical person and do not play any instruments. After naming all these reasons that you shouldn’t be in a handbell choir, if you still hear a voice in your heart saying ‘I would love to learn how to play the bells just for fun,’  I encourage you to come to the open house. You will not be asked to join the bell choir nor asked to play during services. Just come and have some FUN! Looking forward to seeing you!”

If you can, please RSVP to to hyosang@princetonumc.org
