To stir: to mix, blend, move or cause to move as in awakening, disturb….

Velocity Handbell Ensemble presents

Stir

… A mixture of musical compositions designed to awaken, blend together, perhaps inspire, rouse, maybe excite, possibly disturb and hopefully draw you into the music of Velocity — music that moves.

Velocity’s Artistic Director is participating in The Big Ring! Watch P.L. and 699 other ringers LIVE as they attempt to break a Guinness World Record this Saturday morning!  The Big Ring aims to be the largest handbell ensemble ever assembled. In partnership with Minnesota’s Mall of America and the Handbell Musicians of America, this event is part of The Salvation Army’s Kettle Kickoff – the start of the red kettle campaign that runs through the holiday season.  The event will be broadcast online at http://bit.ly/The-Big-Ring on Saturday, November 19 at 11am CST (9am Pacific Time).  Click the Thunderclap link below to add the event to your Facebook feed.
