DUXBURY — The Wesley Bell Ringers of Utah will perform at 7:30 p.m. June 16 at Pilgrim Church of Duxbury, 404 Washington St.
The concert, hosted by the local United Church of Christ Congregation, is part of the bell choir’s 54th annual summer tour featuring 16 teenage performers playing more than 150 bells and chimes. The teens will be accompanied by six chaperones.
The concert will include music from Disney’s “Pocahontas,” Albioni’s “Adagio” and the works of noted hand-bell composers and arrangers.
The Wesley Bell Ringers are a music ministry of Christ United Methodist Church in Salt Lake City. The group was founded in 1963 with nine youth ringers and 25 bells. Over the years, 494 youths have participated in the organization.
The bell choir, which has developed a reputation for musical excellence, has opened doors to exciting opportunities for both performers and audiences alike. In the past 53 years, the group has performed in all 50 states, and all but one Canadian province.
The choir last appeared in concert at Pilgrim Church in 2014. Although this will be the group’s only Massachusetts concert this summer, there will be other New England concerts in Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont as part of this tour.
Tickets are not required, but a free-will offering will be taken. For more information about the Wesley Bell Ringers, visit http://wesleybells.org. For more questions about Pilgrim Church or the concert, call the church office at 781-934-6591 or visit http://uccduxbury.org.
