Lincoln Middle School’s Handbell Choir and Select Choir will give a performance on Thursday, Dec. 14, at a Cumberland County Retired Educators’ meeting.  The 1 p.m. performance will be at the Fireside Inn & Suites on Riverside Street.

The Handbell Choir also is playing at the Deering Community Center on Sunday, Dec. 17, at 6 p.m., for a Christmas service. This will be the third year that the Handbell Choir has been invited to play for the event, said band teacher Audrey Cabral.

Lincoln is one of just a handful of schools in Maine to have a Handbell Choir. Handbells are a longtime tradition at the school – the choir dates back 37 years, to 1985. Students still enjoy ringing after all those years – 17 students are in the choir. “Handbells are unique and we are so lucky to have them here,” Cabral said.

Cabral conducts the Handbells and Bethany Kirkpatrick conducts the Select Choir, which has 15-20 members.
