Council Oak Bell Team Shines in Dallas Showcase

The Council Oak Bells team continues its dedication to performance this season. This group performed a showcase concert on Saturday, September 9 at Lover’s Lane United Methodist Church in Dallas. This concert was in response to an invitation from the Greater Dallas Handbell Association. The performance was part of the GDHA’s Fall Seminar, attended annually by many ringers and directors from the Dallas/Ft. Worth Area. In addition, both Shari Sloane and Carla David taught classes at this event.

We are so proud of the Council Oak Bells. This is the first time a church handbell choir has been invited to perform at the GDHA Fall Seminar. The concert went great. The team enjoyed a standing ovation and performed an encore!  First Church Crossroads musician Brian Batch joined Council Oak Bells for this performance.
