The Sun City Chimers and our Wesley Ringers, under the direction of Bruce Murray, will usher in the Advent season the First Sunday of Advent, December 2 at the 8:30 & 11AM worship services.
Effective this season, Bruce Murray directs both ensembles. Rosemary Bishop and her sister, Nancy Graham, are members of both groups.
The Sun City Chimers, now in their 16th season, perform at local venues, including Sun City events, senior and nursing facilities, and churches. The ensemble has grown in size so that there are currently two groups – one that performs advanced music and an auxiliary group that plays easier music providing an opportunity for new members to learn to play handchimes. There are over 20 active members and several substitutes.
The Sun City Chimers play a wide variety of music. For the December holiday period, Christmas favorites, including popular sing-a-longs, carols, and secular pieces, are always played. This December the Chimers will perform at several venues:
December 2 – Sun City Chimers Advanced Group and Wesley Ringers
December 6- Bloom, at Belfair, 10:00AM
December 13- Benton House, Hampton Lake, 10:00AM
December 16- Holiday Concert, Low Country Presbyterian Church, Sun City Chimers and Jubilate Ringers, 3PM
