Courthouse Docket

Ring in the Holidays!

Ring in the holidays with the sounds of handbells! The San Francisco State University (SFSU) Handbell Choir will perform a variety of holiday tunes. After the concert, the audience will have a chance to participate in a ring and sing.

Formed in 1997, the SFSU Handbell Choir rings on 4 octaves of Schulmerich handbells and 3 octaves of hand chimes. Caroline Harnly, a librarian at SFSU, is the groupís director and founder who has over 30 years of experience as a handbell ringer. With nine handbell ringers, the group performs at various SFSU campus events and at locations in San Francisco and on the Peninsula. They have also participated in the annual Days of Christmas concert series at Temple Hill in Oakland.

Ms. Harnly is the co-composer of Canzona, an original composition for solo handbells.

The concert is part of the holiday celebration at the History Museum on December 6. Families are also invited to explore Holiday Traditions from Around the World in the History Museum Rotunda.
