Favourites Old and New: Jubiloso! Bells of Concordia Concert
“Favourites New” include the international premiere of the award-winning “So Glorious and Free,” by longtime Jubiloso ringer Betty Radford. Betty’s piece, which highlights the rich musical heritage of Canada, won the composition competition anticipating the 2016 International Handbell Symposium in Vancouver. Other favourites range from Disney’s hit song “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen and Kate Perry’s “Firework,” to golden oldies like Glen Miller’s “Moonlight Serenade” and “What a Wonderful World,” Louis Armstrong’s hit from 1967.
Jubiloso! Bells of Concordia, an Edmonton community-based auditioned ensemble, performs on the largest set of handbells and handchimes in Canada, including more than six octaves in all. Conductor Debbie Rice is recognized internationally for her work in this unique field. She has served as Executive Director for the International Handbell Committee and as National President of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers, the largest handbell organization worldwide, and travels frequently as a clinician and festival conductor in the U.S. and for international events.
