Notre Dame Handbell Ensembles Program Launches!

With the generous support of the ND Alumni Foundation and Parent Support Group, Notre Dame was able to purchase a four-octave set of Schulmerich Handbells this November. With over fifty students currently enrolled in the program, three handbell ensembles have been created at the school in less than three months. The ensembles have already had over a dozen performances including one with the UBC Symphonic Wind Ensemble at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts. They also have toured our elementary feeder schools with the band program for further outreach and recruitment.

The handbells are very expensive instruments, and we are so grateful that the ND Alumni Foundation and Parent Support Group chose to invest in the new program. We look forward to seeing you at one of our future concerts at the school! The instrumental music program at Notre Dame Regional Secondary consists of four wind ensembles, two jazz ensembles, and three handbell ensembles.
