"Overture" is an exceptional original composition. With a range from 3 to 7 octaves of handbells and 3 to 6 octaves of handchimes, along with optional orchestra chimes (or auxiliary bells), timpani, wind chimes, suspended cymbal, tam tam, tambourine, snare drum, triangle, and vibra slap, this piece promises to be an exciting experience for both performers and audience.
The optional Orchestra Chimes, Timpani, and Percussion parts are available separately to accommodate the specific needs of each ensemble. The Orchestra Chimes may be performed by Auxiliary bells such as Silver Melody Handbells or Petit & Fritsen Handbells. Enjoy! 106 measures in c minor.
