First United Methodist to host handbell ensemble July 22
Strikepoint, one of the world’s top handbell ensembles, will perform at 7 p.m. July 22 at First United Methodist Church, 127 N. 10th St. Admission is free, but a $10 to $15 donation is suggested. This performance is part of the group’s 2019 summer tour.
Strikepoint, from First United Methodist Church in Duluth, Minnesota, was established in 1984 and has been touring annually since 1986. Their travels have taken them to England, Scotland, Japan, Hong Kong, Sweden, Canada, Hawaii and throughout the mainland U.S., with performances in four national capitals. They have performed at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, Disney World in Florida, and both Disneyland and the Crystal Cathedral in California. In 2016 they were cultural exchange ambassadors to Vaxjo, Duluth’s Swedish sister city, and were featured performers for that region’s Minnesota Days celebration.
