Maddie's Hand-bell Performance

Maddie has always been drawn to music. When she was old enough she started taking piano lessons. Currently she does private piano lessons, plays the flute and hand-bells at school, and is in chorus at school. The end of the semester is bringing several concerts. She began with a piano recital a couple of weeks ago. Then this past week she had the first winter concert at school. The music program is so big that they had to break things into two concerts. This past week was hand-bells and chorus. Then yesterday she performed hand-bells at the Shops at Norterra, an outdoor mall.

I am amazed at her musical ability. This is her first experience with hand-bells and I am very impressed! Here are the songs they performed. Enjoy!
