Coppers Classic was founded with the idea in mind that, if coppers (intermediate) level handbell musicians who love the instrument and who are willing to work hard are given the right environment and guidance, the musical and personal results will be astounding. Since most handbell musicians ring with ensembles with a wide range of experience and skills, it is an entirely new experience to spend 3 days with equally skilled, remarkably motivated and passionate handbell musicians.
Looking at the repertoire list, many musicians have been known to comment “What was I thinking?!” or “How can I possibly accomplish that?!!” Invariably the passion and hard work each musician brings pays huge rewards. Cheryl Zents of Half Moon Bay, CA wrote, “Thank you for one of the most memorable experiences of my life! I enjoyed the whole week-end, but as the concert progressed, I felt more and more emotional, like my heart was full to overflowing.”
Our 2018 repertoire list is shaping up. The final list will be posted by the end of June. Meanwhile, please take a look at the compositions we’ve tackled the first three years. Some great stuff and more great on the way!
