The Vernon Handbell Choir is one of the hidden jewels in the local music scene.

Directed by Winfield’s Dwight Holmberg, the choir performs on unique bronze bells and chimes that have a visual appeal and diverse sound.

The public can hear for themselves when the choir gives two performances in Vernon for the Christmas season.

The first one takes place on Sunday at 10 a.m. at the First Baptist Church, located at 15th Street and 32nd Avenue. The choir will be accompanied by flutist Devon Muhlert and the First Baptist choir.

The second performance is at Canterbury Court on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 1:30 p.m.

The public is very welcome to attend these two performances.
