A Handbell Christmas
December 1, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$22 - $24
Celebrate the holiday season with Leavenworth’s Marlin Handbell Ringers and friends!
The Marlin Handbell Ringers was formed in 1979 by the “city fathers” of Leavenworth to help promote the Bavarian Village. Through the years the bells have played hundreds of concerts in many venues and in many places. Over fifty ringers have come and gone. The current group consists of 13 ringers and 108 handbells. The group is named in honor of Archie Marlin who sold caramel apples during festivals to pay back the loan that bought the original set of bells. Canyon Wren Recital Hall is “home” for the bells where rehearsals take place.
