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! Read more ›
Forté and the Pikes Peak Ringers are once again “Joining Forces” to bring you a combined concert, including favorites like “Sail Away” and “Gabriel’s Oboe.” Come join us for a great evening of fun and music! Read more ›
Forté was founded in 2007, which means this is our tenth anniversary (or birthday?)! We figure this is reason enough for celebration and can’t wait to share the music (a mix of old favorites and new arrangements) with you. Bring your friends! Read more ›
Also available on our DVD “Rethink Possible,” the music video for “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” is now available on YouTube! We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
The video was filmed at Bishop Castle, near Rye, Colorado, and features the Piano Guys’ arrangement, which we adapted for bowed chimes (Dillon Ekle), handbell tree (Megan Reishus) and handbells (Luke Nabeta and Tory Marting).
You’re cordially invited to kick off the Christmas season with the Pikes Peak Ringers as we perform many well-known carols, including a special appearance by the Forté Handbell Quartet! A free-will offering will be collected. Read more ›
