The Brookwood Handbell Ensemble was formed nearly 15 years ago by Linda McKechnie, a world-renowned musical artist.
The ensemble is composed of 15 Citizens who have learned to read music using an adaptive notation system. They play three octaves of Malmark handbells and choir chimes. They have performed for the Houston Grand Opera Gala, the Houston Symphony, numerous churches, private events, and here on campus. They are most well-known for playing the National Anthem at the Houston Astros games!
The Brookwood Handbell Ensemble also collaborates with the Houston Bronze Ensemble, Houston’s premier handbell choir.
