Handbell Virtuoso Christine Anderson to Perform in Gold Canyon Mar. 10

The Performing Arts Series of Gold Canyon United Methodist Church proudly presents internationally renowned handbell virtuoso Christine Anderson in concert in the incredible acoustics of the church’s 1200-seat sanctuary on Sunday, Mar. 10 at 3 p.m.
The solo handbell artistry of Christine is world-renowned.  With finesse, grace and technical dexterity, Christine has thrilled audiences in all 50 states and 25 countries around the world.  Her fans will tell you that you will not be the same after hearing and seeing Christine play.  Doug Benton, the church’s Director of Music Ministries says, “I have known Christine since the mid-70′s, and I can tell you she has rung more handbells in concert than any other person – living or dead!  She is truly an exceptional musician.  You will not believe what you see and hear!”
Christine began her ringing career at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 1972, ringing or directing 6 handbells choirs, and began conducting workshops and festivals around the country.  She rang her first handbell solo in 1980, discovering the gift that would define her life’s work, and produced a video, Voices in Bronze®.  She has written over 100 solo handbell arrangements and literally wrote the book on solo handbell ringing.
You are invited to bring your family, friends and neighbors to this very unique concert.  A full house is expected so come early.  Doors open at 2:15 pm. This concert is offered at no charge as a free will offering will be received.  Everyone is asked to please bring at least one non-perishable food item per person for the GCUMC Food Bank.  The church is located one block north of Highway 60 on Kings Ranch Road (Walgreens on the corner), five miles east of Apache Junction.  For more information, call the church at 480-982-3776.
