The Manitou Handbell Choir, Chapel Ringers and the St. Olaf Handbell Choir performed Christmas carols in Buntrock Commons on Saturday Dec. 1 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

The event drew a large crowd of students, alumni and their families, as another festive seasonal event before Christmas Festival. Buntrock Commons was filled with lively holiday cheer thanks to the handbell choirs’ performance.

The St. Olaf Handbell Choir and the Chapel Ringers are directed by Jill Mahr and the Manitou Handbell Choir is student-directed.
