Home Concert - Heavenly Bells - 2017


The Ridgewood United Methodist Church (RUMC) is the residence of Jersey Jubilation. RUMC is an 'acoustically active' venue that reverberates musical presentations equivalent to many fine music halls in New York City. The venue has been the site of concerts and recordings of many professional, accomplished groups and musicians including the Youth Ringers (a touring, concert and broadcasting youth handbell choir resident for over 15 years under Christine Braden, Director), Dr. Jean Langlais, Virgil Fox, Dr. Richard E. Frey, Dr. James Wynne, and the current guest resident choir, the Jersey Jubilation Handbell Choir.

We are delighted to be offering our 13th Annual Home Holiday Concert through the RUMC music department. The Concert is open to the community and takes a freewill {see below} offering to support the costs of the Handbell Choir, the music program of the RUMC and in addition, to other programs in need.

Programs are part of the RUMC 2017-2018 Music Concert Series which presents music of different mediums throughout the year. The programs begin at 8:00pm and will be presented at the Ridgewood United Methodist Church Sanctuary located at 100 Dayton Street in Ridgewood, NJ. (Office Phone: 201-652-2868) [directions].
