Joining them will be Dr. F. Anthony Thurman performing works for organ and handbells and organ solo. The concert will be Internet livestreamed on Westminster’s YouTube channel.

The Wilmington Handbell Ensemble was founded by Michael Helman in 2000 and is the only community-based handbell ensemble in Wilmington. The purpose of the Wilmington Handbell Ensemble is to educate and introduce audiences to the beautiful and varied repertoire for handbells as well as promote excellence in musicianship among its members. In addition to their own concerts, the ensemble has played at Longwood Gardens; First Night Wilmington; Christmas in Old New Castle; Christmas Open Houses in Salem and Woodstown, New Jersey; Brandywine River Museum; and at the Delaware Art Museum. They have also been featured with the Newark Symphony, Rainbow Chorale of Delaware, and Wilmington Madrigal Singers in their holiday concerts.
