Messiah Lutheran Church is blessed with many talented musicians.  Last week we highlighted the talents of the Contemporary Worship Service Band.  This week we are focusing the spotlight on the Notabella Bell Choir which performed “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken” as part of the Reformation Sunday Service.  The Notabella Bell Choir is the most advanced of Messiah’s Bell Choirs.  This group is directed by Rhonda Gaede.  In an exclusive interview with the Messiah Lutheran Blog, Rhonda stated that she got her start in the Bell Choir by accident.  While she was rehearsing with the vocal choir, the director asked her if she could read music.  When she acknowledged that she could read music, she was invited to fill in during a bells rehearsal.  She was immediately hooked on bells and the rest is history.

Messiah has many bell choirs for all age groups and for all skill levels.  If you have ever listened to the bell choir perform and thought it might be fun to try, Rhonda could probably find just the right bells group for you.

Your next opportunity to hear the bells perform will be at Messiah’s annual Ring and Sing concert on Sunday, December 12th at 6:30 p.m.  Music from the Notabella Bell Choir, Cantabile Bell Choir, Children’s and Adult Chime and vocal groups will be featured.  Audience hand chime participation for ringing of Christmas carols is also on the program!  We hope to see you there.
