If you appreciate music and you’ve never heard a professional handbell choir, it really is a treat. But don’t take my word for it; this Friday, Ottawa residents have a chance to listen to a beautiful, Christmas handbell concert – taking place alongside the Ten Thousand Villages Festival Sale. Here are all the details:
WHEN: Friday, Nov. 21 from 7 to 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: Ottawa Mennonite Church, located at 1830 Kilborn Avenue (lots of free parking!)
WHY: This is a special, one-time performance by the handbell choir, La Bell Ensemble. Get into the spirit of the season with a performance of your favourite holiday carols.
