Curious about hand bells? Concert tonight (4/17) at St. Bede’s

by Linda Hubbard Gulker on April 17, 2010

Bell soloist Michele Sharik

Bell ringing is an ancient art, but much in the present for Michele Sharik, who combines tradition with innovation.  She’ll present a selection of her favorite pieces in a performance called The Golden Dance tonight (4/17) at St. Bede’s Church in Menlo Park, promising to weave a tapestry of music and story from Renaissance England to the Golden Gate.

To fans, Michele is known as “knowledgeable, funny, entertaining, and deeply soulful … even as she lifts more than 250 pounds of bronze in her own dance-like choreography.” She’ll be accompanied by pianist, Dr. Valerie Sterk. Tickets are $25/$18; the performance begins at 7:30 pm.
