Twin Cities Bronze Raises Hundreds of Dollars at Mid-Winter Benefit Concert

Twin Cities Bronze, one of the nation's premier English Handbell ensembles, raised over $800 in freewill offerings for two local causes at their Mid-Winter Concert.

The 60 minute concert featured a wide variety of repertoire and was attended by 115 people on Saturday, January 24th at Peace United Methodist Church in Shoreview, MN. Twin Cities Bronze is one of the few professional handbell ensembles that perform without a conductor. They rely on musicianship, teamwork, and technical and musical execution to thrill audiences with classical and secular selections.

Proceeds from the Mid-Winter Concert were split between Peace United Methodist which graciously provides rehearsal and storage space for Twin Cities Bronze, and The Allen Benefit Fund. The Allen Benefit Fund was established to raise money to help offset medical costs for Janine and Bernie Allen, who were critically injured in a motorcycle accident in August of 2008.

Monica McGowan, the Artistic Director of Twin Cities Bronze, said, "As a professional ensemble, I believe it is important for Twin Cities Bronze to be an active participant and supporter of organizations, and people. Ringing a benefit concert of this type is somewhat unusual for us, but it was a successful event for everyone."

Twin Cities Bronze is available for fundraising performances on a limited basis. For more information, contact Ms. McGowan at 952-461-7261.
