Handbell-RingersJoin the University of Alberta Mixed Chorus at its Spring Concert, on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 at 7:30 PM at the Faith and Life Chapel at Augustana. Once again the UAMC is pleased to present an engaging assortment of choral work ranging from the Baroque to Broadway. Highlighted works include J. S. Bach’s ‘Bist du bei mir’, William Byrd’s ‘O Magnum Mysterium,’ and selections from the musical ‘The Music Man.’

Featured with the UAMC are the Faculty of Education Handbell Ringers, who celebrate their 25th anniversary this year. This group plays one of largest collections of handbells and chimes in Canada. The Handbell Ringers will be playing “Syncopated Clock,” and a special commissioned arrangement of “Belle of the Ball.” Both pieces were composed by Leroy Anderson whose works were often showcased by the Boston Pops Orchestra.

The UAMC is one of the University’s oldest groups. Each season, its members come together to share a love of music, under the inspirational leadership of Dr. Robert de Frece. For almost 70 years the UAMC has created beautiful music and shared it with the community in the spirit of those students who founded the group in 1944.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $14 for students and seniors and $45 for a family. Tickets are only available at the door. Proceeds will go to support the Augustana Choir’s tour activities. For further information, call the Augustana Music Office, ph 780-679-1532.
