Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Ring–a–ling, hear them ring, the Concordia College Handbell choir's in the city.

The traveling ensemble held a show this afternoon at the Coppertop church in Duluth Saturday.

The 15–member group played a variety of pieces, including film show tunes such as the theme to Pirates of the Caribbean.

The Handbells and choir chimes used span a musical range of five or even six octaves, and the performers must rush to quickly switch between different bells while playing.

The Handbell Choir is not a college funded program. Despite that, the show was entirely free of charge, accepting only free–will offerings from concert–goers.
