They are known as one of the world’s top handbell ensembles and we are proud that they call Duluth’s First United Methodist Church their home.  I have been a fan since the inception of Strikepoint in the mid 80’s when my cousin was a member.  This particular performance will be their homecoming concert from their summer tour.

In the late 80’s, Strikepoint performed Pachelbel’s Canon in D for my wedding party.  Instead of a bouquet, the girl’s carried Princess House crystal bells to tie into the theme.  Since then, their talents have taken them across the world, Scotland, Japan, Sweden and England to name just a few.

At this time, there are 11 members and interesting enough they have no director.  Instead,  Bill Alexander is the leader of the group, as well as a well-known handbell clinician and conductor.  From experience, I know they play a variety of music that will definitely please all ages.  Trust me, you’ll be delighted and want to buy one of their newest CD’s, Reflections.

Intrigued?  Attend their up coming concert and you’ll be thrilled.  They will be performing at the First United Methodist Church, 230 East Skyline Parkway in Duluth on Sunday, July 21 at 7:30p.  Admission, according to a press release is free, however a suggestion donation of $15 is greatly appreciated.
