OCHE Receives Grant from Oklahoma Arts Council

Oklahoma City Handbell Ensemble is a proud recipient of a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council to assist in funding a portion of the Ensemble's spring 2016 tour and concert season.

"We are excited to reach more people in more places with the help of the [Oklahoma] Arts Council when we take our show on the road." – Jeremy Springer, Media Liaison for OCHE

The spring 2016 tour will be the first tour of the Ensemble since our founding in 2008. With tour stops planned in Tulsa, Miami, Piedmont, and Oklahoma City, our artists will be introducing new people to one of the most fantastic instruments!
