DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter)---The Handbell Musicians of America are doing their part to help victims of the flood.

More than 450 musicians from across the country have been in town since Thursday participating in a hand bell conference at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.

Guest musicians also included brass, violin, percussion and choir.
The group presented four pieces today at a free concert.

Money donated at the performance will help flood recovery efforts in the Northland.

"I think what is special about today is that the area seven board made the decision to donate the freewill offering to the Duluth Red Cross organization for flood relief."

The musicians rehearsed for the performance in groups, divided according to their skill levels.
