• 2015 Concert Tour: Opening Concert in Callander, Scotland

    The Allegro Handbell Ensemble prepares for its first concert in Callander, Scotland.

    Well, it was another amazing day in our 2015 European Concert Tour! We had a bit of a change of plans which turned out to work in our favor, as Tine Greene '15, Celia Balderston '17, and Grace Cook '18 explain, along with director Stephen Edwards:

    Lucky for us, we got an extra hour of sleep last night. After waking up, feeling all wonderfully rested, we had a bit of a late start. Instead of traveling to Loch Lemmond, we had another day to venture around Edinburgh.

  • 2015 Concert Tour: Performance with Dunblane Cathedral Ringers

    Allegro teamed up with the Dunblane Cathedral Handbell Ringers to present a grand Scottish concert.

    We're a bit sad that our time in Scotland is coming to an end. This morning we got up and met our driver at 9:45. He took us to this tiny place that he claims has the best Scottish breakfast. He may have been telling the truth. It was delicious!

    After "breakfast" we went to Sterling to see the castle. It was fast and fun! There was a big cycling event going on, so we were let off at the bottom of the hill and hiked our way up to the castle. It was a blast. The castle was not nearly as ornate as Edinburgh, but it was indeed fantastic!
