The Abundant Life Church on Humbert Road in Alton will host a concert Saturday featuring a hand bell choir and a special performance by a group that will be performing standards by composers such as Cole Porter and Gershwin.  The event is the Spring Concert 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, and a women's choir he first heard about 6 months ago.

The concert 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.
