The Upper Alton Baptist Church on College Avenue will host a concert Sunday featuring a hand bell choir and a special performance by a group that performs Irish music. The event is a fundraiser for the Upper Alton Christian Ringers – a group of people from the various churches in Upper Alton that come together to perform as a bell choir.
Bell Choir Director Irwin Ballard says there will be performances by the bell choir, a children’s bell choir, and the group Celtica.

The concert starts at 2, and is free to attend, but there will be a free will offering taken. Ballard says funds are needed to purchase music, repair the bells, and other miscellaneous expenses.
