RING OF FIRE: CONCERTO FOR HANDBELL CHOIR AND ORCHESTRA - Kevin McChesney - 5-7 octave handbells with orchestra - Level VI
The vision behind Ring of Fire, Concerto for Handbell Choir and Orchestra, is to bring the handbell choir fully into the view of a wide concert audience as a musical instrument of much expressive intricacy and power. The solo part for handbell choir is virtuoso music and it is hoped that this piece will inspire higher achievement in handbell ringing and composing, and will offer a wide-ranging audience an appreciation of this versatile instrument.
