The William Jewell College Handbell Choir will go on tour in February. The free concerts are open to the public. The choir will perform in the following locations:

Springdale, AR: Thursday, February 25 at 1:30 p.m. at Monitor Elementary School

Rogers, AR: Thursday, February 25 at 7 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church

North Little Rock, AR: Friday, February 26 at 7 p.m. at Lakewood United Methodist Church

Hot Springs, AR: Saturday, February 27 at 7 p.m. at First Baptist Church

Raytown, MO: Sunday, February 28 at 6 p.m. at Blue Ridge Presbyterian Church

The choir performs on 5-plus octaves of Malmark handbells and handchimes. The program includes sacred and secular as well as transcriptions and original works for handbells. Works by noted handbell composers D. Shawn Berry, Fred Gramann, Cathy Moklebust, Timothy W. Waugh, Lloyd Larson and Martha Lynn Thompson will be presented.

In 1975, Dr. Donald C. Brown, former music department chair, began Jewell's handbell program. Students raised funds, purchased handbells, and donated them to the college. Two choirs are currently organized, providing opportunities for beginning and advanced ringers. The choirs are frequently called upon to present programs on campus and in the KC metropolitan area.
