This year's 3rd Annual Mother's Day Concert, presented by the RiverBend Bronze Handbell Ensemble, will be on Sunday, May 10th @ 4:00 p.m. at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 1800 7th Ave., Moline. The concert is free and open to the public with a free-will donation being accepted at the door.
River Bend Bronze is the Quad Cities' own community based handbell choir. Members of the group come from the Quad Cities proper as well as surrounding communities. The group for this concert numbers 14 auditioned ringers. Three of the ringers presently direct other handbell choirs in their own churches. The director of the group, Larry B. Peterson, is Director of Music for Campus Ministries at Augustana where he conducts the Ascension Ringers and Steeple Ringers handbell choirs.
Some of the pieces on this year's concert will include arrangements of such recognizable tunes as: Pirates of the Caribbean, Let It Go from the Disney movie, Frozen and a couple of original arrangements of hits by the legendary rock group, Queen.
To top off the afternoon, there will be a dessert reception after the concert. So, after you have treated mom to that Sunday dinner out, bring her and the rest of the family out for a delightful afternoon concert and desserts.
