The Virginia Handbell Consort (VHC) was formed in the fall of 1996 as the first community handbell ensemble in the Hampton Roads area. VHC's goal is to promote the art of English handbell ringing by performing concerts throughout the spring and winter holiday seasons.
The group is comprised of auditioned musicians performing on over five octaves of Schulmerich bells, five and a half octaves of MelodyChimes, three octaves of Petit and Fritsen bells, and other percussion instruments. Concert repertoire includes spectacular selections of secular, classical, and sacred pieces which demonstrate a multitude of bell techniques currently being explored by composers.
