GRACE NOTES TEEN BELLS  is a large group of fun and diverse bell ringers in grades 7+. You will find us in the Sanctuary on Thursdays from 6:45 – 7:30 p.m. No prior music experience required – we will teach you everything you need to know to join in and ring the bells. This group loves exploring an eclectic mix of pieces (we have done ABBA, Star Wars, Harry Potter and Les Misérables) and we enjoy learning cool and interesting new techniques for making music. We share our music in the fall term at the Christmas Bell concert (beginning of Advent), the Christmas Pageant (December 11th) and on Christmas Eve. Everyone is welcome to take part. Our first practice will be on Thursday, September 8th. For more information, or to sign up, please contact Andrea Laliberté, the director of the group, at 613-248-1283 or
