Sunday. Aprl 8, 2007 The totaJoumat, Greenwood. S C. 30 Mimgimg m ike fim mi GCS Students join in tradition of handbells Greenwood Christum School is continuing expansion of its fine arts program. Thanks to ft donation, the school purchased two octaves of cast-bronze English handbells from one of the largest handbell manufacturers in the country, the Schulmeric Bells, of Selkrsville, Pa. It is often noted that necessity is the mother of invention, and the creation of handbells seems to bear out this axiom, tt is thought by many that handbells were made for the purpose of practicing change ringing. The practice of change ringing began centuries ago in Great Britain. A team of ringers would climb the bell tower to go through the mathematical changes of ringing the bells. In some cases, this practice, or rehearsal, might take hours, for when one makes a mistake, it is likely the peal would have 2? f3W V so"-""- I A handbell choir has been established in die GCS Middle School, and McCravy plans to expand the program next school year. Contributed photo director Dana to begin again. These bell towers, for the most part, are exposed to the weather, and the ringing room below the bells, where one pulls the ropes, does not usually have climate control. Change ringing is predominantly an English tradition, and the cold and damp weather conditions don't lend themselves to prolonged "outdoor" activity, especially in the winter months. Thus, using hand-held bells for practice, instead of braving the elements under the ropes, seems a mcre practical option. Another factor in the develop ment of a handbell might have been the complaints from the neighbors. Imagine hearing the church bells ring constantly for an hour, two hours, stopping, beginning again and ringing for hours more. The good-neighbor policy must have demanded some remedy. Thus, the handbell was birthed into a musk form of its own. The use of handbells expanded over the years to provide celestial mask in churches. Before reaching churches in America, handbell music had an early start as part of the Bamum & Bailey Circus as a special treat for spectators. Eventually, handbells became popular in American churches and community organizations. There are now more than 10,000 handbell choirs in the United States. Dana McCravy, musk director at GCS, has established a handbell choir in the Middle School. One of the best ways to teach musk theory is through use of handbells. Additionally, students can learn to make beautiful musk in a short span of time. She plans to expand the program in the Middle School for the 2007-08 year and men offer it in the high school for the 2008-09 year. During the next school term, the handbell choir will be available for community, civic and church performances. Piedmont Tech honors its academic achievers Piedmont Tech President Lex D.
