Tintinnabulation: Classic and Contemporary Song Played On Handbells

Bell ringing event, photographed in the Telegraph, UK

tintinnabulation: 1) the ringing or sounding of bells 2) a jingling or tinkling sound as if of bells

Fresh City Life is making beautiful music with Arts & Venues Denver this year. Our shared May event, a concert with the Castle Rock Community Ringers, continues a partnership of free and spectacular cultural programming.

Here's my street cred on this topic: I grew up attending a Presbyterian church and, in my experience, two things were always certain at church. First, during services, when the 'moment of fellowship' arrived and we were all supposed to turn to a relative stranger and greet them with a handshake or (gasp) hug, we instead would turn to one of our own family members and greet them -- with very restrained joy. And secondly, there was always a bell choir. Always. It's a tradition that I'm glad has continued on -- and I write that with joy unrestrained.
