Timeless is the first concert series in Houston Chamber Ringers' 2021-22 season: "A Time to Ring." After a largely silent year, they are overjoyed to be sharing their talents with an audience. "Timeless" explores the idea that great music exists in every and all eras...even if we can't perform it for a while. "Timeless" pulls heavily from classical music, from Mozart to Saint-Saens. But it also explores timeless artists from other decades including Dave Brubeck, Led Zeppelin, and Kansas.
There are still two opportunities to experience Timeless.
January 29, 2022, 2:00 pm at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Hallettsville, TX, 100 N. Promenade St.
January 30, 2022, 2:00 pm at Lone Star College-Tomball
For a time like no other, join Houston Chamber Ringers as they explore music in and out of time in “Time Pieces.” Check your watch; you will not want to be late for these timeless musical treasures. Bells were among the earliest timekeepers, so this is a program centuries in the making! Works from composers such as Hans Zimmer to Cyndi Lauper will be joined by several original handbell compositions, as well as the uproarious silent short film, “Dodge Your Debts.” Houston Chamber Ringers will perform an original score for the film, as well as provide all the sound effects!
There are two opportunities to see this fabulous production, in two fabulous venues! On April 30, at 2:00, “Time Pieces” will be performed at the National Museum of Funeral History. Because we don’t want you to miss an opportunity to visit this fascinating museum before time marches on, your ticket to the concert will give you museum admission at no extra charge! Tickets are $20.
You can also see the show at the historic Old Town Theatre in Huntsville, on May 1 at 4:00. This beautifully restored landmark is a treat to visit, and is a perfect setting for this gem of a concert. Tickets are $20 and available here or directly from Old Town Theatre.
Are You Ready to Up Your Game?
HCR has a new and exciting opportunity for Houston area ringers and directors. They are offering "Masterclass" on Tuesday evenings starting March 1, 2022.
Masterclass is for anyone who wants to strengthen their bell-ringing skills. Especially:
Directors who want to practice skills to teach to their choirs.
Ringers who want to experience more challenging music.
Ringers who want to audition for HCR someday, but don't have the skills yet.
Ringers without a current choir who want that advanced ringing fun without a long-term commitment.
