Handbells, choir at concert

The Solana Beach Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir and Handbell Choir, composed of more than 80 members, are about to make a 16-day Ministry Concert trip to Budapest, Hungary; Kiev, Ukraine; and Moscow. The choir will depart on June 25 and return July 10. Pastors Mike McClenahan and Tom Theriault will join them.

The choir has prepared for this trip for more than three years, working arduously to memorize more than 20 choral pieces. It is excited to share the musical selections by Haydn, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Chesnokov (sung in Russian), as well as a variety of gospel songs and spirituals from some of America’s best arrangers.

Before the group leaves, it will perform a free Spring Concert to premiere some Eastern European and Russian Ministry Music at 7 p.m. June 5 in Solana Beach Presbyterian Church, 120 Stevens Ave., Solana Beach.

The concert will feature special appearances by Barbara Tobler and Michael Rosensteel. Tobler is a classically trained lyric coloratura soprano with a four-octave range. Rosensteel has been the musical director/conductor for more than 25 stage productions and a soloist for many years, both regionally and abroad.
