Bell Allure was established in 2009. Ringers are all graduated students of Hong Kong Handbell Academy Advanced Course. They are from all walks of life and were brought together by their passion and enthusiasm towards handbell ringing. The ensemble was led by the artistic director Ms. Emily Li. Bell Allure is a small group ensemble. The high level synchronization of their performance brings the audience a refreshing feeling. It is Bell Allure’s quest to choose diversified forms of music and add new elements in their interpretation. Bell Allure hopes that the creative performance can bring their audience an audio and visual feast.
Since established, Bell Allure has been invited to perform both home and abroad. In terms of local activities, the ensemble participated in 2009 Yuen Long Art Festival, the fund-raising concert organized by the Open University of Hong Kong, 2013 Hong Kong Carol Singing Festival held by the Child Development Foundation, Christmas parties at the elderly centers and wedding parties, etc. In addition, the ensemble also participated in the Hong Kong Handbell Festival concerts “Twenty-Ten” and “Bell Promenade”. The 2011 first solo Christmas concert “Delightful Bell Christmas” won the Bell Allure high reputations.
Beside local cultural events and charity performance, Bell Allure also involved in many international handbell activities, for instance, International Handbell Symposium. In 2008, they travelled to Orlando, the U.S. for the 13th International Handbell Symposium and National Handbell Seminar, and performed in the Mass Ring Concert. In 2010, during the 14th International Handbell Symposium in Osaka Japan, they represent Hong Kong to perform in the Mass Ring Concert again and also participated in the “Echo for Peace” Concert. Later, during the 15th International Handbell Symposium, Bell Allure once again became the representative for Hong Kong, and held a solo handbell concert with the Hong Kong Youth Handbell Ensemble. With its diversified performance style, the concert was highly appreciated by conductors and professional audience, turning up a new page for the overseas development of Hong Kong’s handbell ensembles.
