Capital Ringers, Delmarva’s community handbell ensemble, will present its concert Twelve Days of Christmas at venues in Dover, Milford, Seaford, Rehoboth Beach and Salisbury, Md. The concerts are a holiday tradition throughout the region.

“Our concert takes inspiration from the traditional English carol, focusing on the season of giving and blessing others,” said Kevin B. Chamberlain, Capital Ringers artistic director. “The performance will feature a festive arrangement of the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas,’ and both classical and popular Christmas selections arranged by many of today’s leading handbell composers.”
