The Pärnu Handbell Studio will celebrate their 25th anniversary with a celebratory concert

 

The internationally recongised Pärnu Handbell Studio will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with a concert in their hometown this Friday evening, January 19.

The ensemble began in the autumn of 1998 with just 12 members. Since their humble beginnings, the group has gone on to perform around the world with concert tours in the USA, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Russia, Czech Republic, Latvia, Spain, and Ireland. They have also taken part in European and International handbell festivals.

The love of the ensemble for their music is encapsulated by band member Riina. “My husband works in Tallinn and the question arose in the family – should we stop cutting kilometers between the two cities and move to the capital altogether? But I can’t imagine my life without the bell ensemble and its group of friends! It all gives me so much positivity. We decided that the home must remain in Pärnu.”

Their celebratory concert this Friday, January 19, at the Pärnu Concert Hall will merge graceful bells with beautiful harmonies and melodies, creating an unforgettable musical experience where each bell will fill the hall with light and joy.

Tickets for the 25th-anniversary concert of the Pärnu Handbell Studio are still available at Piletilevi
