You’re in for a treat as Colorado Springs based, Forté Handbell Quartet, makes the trek to Arizona. Forté is an advanced quartet marked by artistry, energy, and dedication to their craft, striving to explore, innovate, inspire, and glorify God through the gift of music. They perform a wide variety of styles, including but not limited to Celtic, techno, pop-country, classical, contemporary Christian, and new age, with the goal of challenging audiences’ perceptions of what handbells can really do.
