Continuing the celebration of its 25th year, Bells of the Cascades — building on the premise that handbells are a tuned percussion instrument — has created its third-full length CD, Hitting Things!
The songs on Hitting Things! pair bells with a variety of other percussive instruments and sounds from traditional drums to less traditional, and somewhat improvised, sounds.
Teaming with Michael Charles Smith (“Marimba Mike”), Bells of the Cascades ends the CD with a spell-binding arrangement of “Bolero” for marimba and handbells arranged for Bells of the Cascades by its director, David York.
Hitting Things! can be purchased for $15 directly from Bells of the Cascades via PayPal, or at CDBaby.
