“On the Road Again” Midwest Tour


The Forté Handbell Quartet from Colorado Springs, CO will be touring to the Midwest this fall, September 29 – October 8!

Forté is a Christian group but we don’t play all Christian music – we perform a wide variety of styles, including but not limited to Celtic, techno, pop-country, classical, contemporary Christian, and new age. If you’ve never seen or heard handbells before, this would be an excellent opportunity to take a look into our world and what the instrument is capable of… and our tagline and motto is “Rethink Possible”, so even if you’re familiar with handbells, chances are good you’ll see something new and different from the instrument! The concert will be approximately 1.5 hours and include an intermission. Hope to see you there!
