Rooke Chapel Ringers

17 01 2007

I road-tripped with some friends last week to the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, PA to see one of our church’s students play in the Rooke Chapel Ringers, the handbell choir from my alma mater, Bucknell University. Here are some photos from The Morning Call newspaper from their concert on the previous evening in Whitehall, PA.

These kids are fantastic! I saw them last year when they played in Morristown, NJ and was amazed! William Payn, the university’s director of choral studies, has developed a spectacular musical program around handbells and choral music. The Ringers are a feature of Bucknell’s famous Christmas Candelight Service which was nominated for an Emmy in 2003.

Bravo to all you ringers!! You make us alumni so very proud.
