Hand Chimes

Hand chimes are built around the concept of the tuning fork. They have a quiet, resonating sound. Since they are much more sturdy than handbells, they are frequently used in schools for musical training. In recent years, choirs composed of hand chimes have emerged as another way of worshiping through music. Hendersonville Presbyterian has a set of five octaves. Anyone who wants to learn the techniques of chime playing and the joy of playing in an ensemble is welcome. Karen Grady is the director of the hand chime group.

Handchimes: John Grady, Dick House, Tabi Stevens, Shannon Stevens, Barbara Norris, Fran Ohlsen,  Ruth Dykstra,  Eva House, Marguerite Martin,  Carol Eder, Kathy Reid, and Carla Reese.
