Bell-issimo, Lincoln's community handbell choir, will present a Christmas Pops and Rock concert at the Royal Grove, 340 W. Cornhusker Highway, at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9.
The concert will include pieces from the 1950s to today's Mannheim Steamroller and Trans-Siberian Orchestra arrangements. Percussion, bass and instrumentalists will join the handbell choir, as well as a vocal arrangement.
A silent auction will help defray the group's expenses, and the auction will include items such as Husker tickets, golf packages, gift baskets and gift certificates to several local businesses.
Bell-issimo is an auditioned choir, and this year's group includes ringers from 10 local churches. It has become recognized as one of the premier choirs in the region. The concert is free, family friendly and open to the public.
