The Selbyville Public Library is sponsoring a Capital Ringers performance on Saturday, May 22, at 3 p.m. at Salem United Methodist Church, 29 West Church Street in Selbyville (down the street from Dollar General).
Families can come to hear their favorite movie themes on a variety of 61 handbells and handchimes. People will be able to hear music from movies such as “The Lion King,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Annie,” to name a few.
Linda Simms, artistic director of the Capital Ringers, explained that the May 22 show will be especially fun for family because their theme is “At the Movies.”
“It’s a fun program because they are all movie themes. They are songs from mostly Disney movies that we all know and grew up watching.”
“It’s fun for the whole family,” agreed Pam Munro, director of the Selbyville Public Library. She noted that the library had the Capital Ringers in for a Christmas concert in 2008, and that they are excited to have them back.
Capital Ringers is an auditioned, non-profit 501(c)3 Delmarva community handbell ensemble located in Dover. The choir rings five octaves of Schulmerich handbells and five octaves of Malmark choirchimes. They are dedicated to musical excellence and service to the community through artistic handbell performances and educational outreach to promote the art of English handbell ringing. They are a member of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers (AGEHR), Area III, and are supported by the Delaware Division of the Arts.
