Ambitious. Inspiring. Tight. Exquisite. Effervescence. Intoxicating. Stunning. Energy.

The Opening Concert last night at the Handbell Musicians of America National Seminar was all of these words and more. We rocked!

As a side note, all of those words mentioned at the top of the post were comments made by audience members after the concert.

Sadly, 10 p.m. arrived earlier than anyone in the ballroom wanted, and we had to cut the concert short – ending on Hart Morris’ Seven, Eight, Lay Them Straight. But don’t worry, an encore presentation of the entire concert – including the piece we cut – will happen at 7 p.m. Wednesday July 20, at Peace United Methodist Church in Shoreview. We might also add in an intermission. We’ve got a lot of material, and we want to share it all with you, so prepare for a deliciously full concert.

The acoustics in the Hilton ballroom actually made for a great handbell concert setting. We were worried that the back of the audience wouldn’t be able to hear the bells, but the worry was for naught. And if you’d like a verbal recap of the entire concert, check out the Handbell Podcast led by two former Twin Cities Bronze members, Paul Weller and Dean Jensen.

There are a lot of sleepy Twin Cities Bronze members today trying to remember how we used to be able to pull those late nights and still function the next day. We’ll have to figure it out quickly, because our National Showcase performance is just around the corner.
