12/22: Bells of the Cascades at Cedar Mill

The Cedar Mill Community Library Association is once again celebrating the rich cultural diversity in their community with the third annual Winter Reading & Arts Festival.

Bells of the Cascades will open the festival on Tuesday, December 22, 7:30 PM in the upstairs meeting room at the Cedar Mill Library.

Bells of the Cascades is a community handbell ensemble. It was formed in 1990 by a group of ringers and directors who recognized that handbells and handbell music were rapidly changing, growing and, in many ways, being reinvented as an instrument. Their desire was to bring this rich repertoire and unique sound beyond the church walls, where they are commonly heard, and to the community at large.

They are dedicated to the advancement of handbell ringing through performance and education, conducting workshops and holding events for ringers.

All ages welcome. Although this concert is free and open to the public, complimentary tickets are required for admittance. Tickets are available at the Cedar Mill Library Adult Reference desk.

The Winter Reading & Arts Festival runs from 12/22/09 to 2/28/10. For more information, visit our website or call the reference desk at 503 644-0043 Ext 114.

Cedar Mill Community Library is located at 12505 NW Cornell Road, just off Saltzman Rd.
