Kiriku refers to itself as a small “design team” of musicians. It is indeed by design—and with astounding teamwork—that they perform on more than six octaves of handbells and chimes with only 6-8 ringers.
The group performs a variety of classical, religious, jazz, popular and traditional Japanese music in major halls throughout Japan. Kiriku has several CDs and a growing fan base in their country—including Japan’s Empress herself—and they have been hailed as, quite simply, the best handbell group in the world.
Come and enjoy this free and amazing concert at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego on August 2 from 7:30 - 10:00 p.m.
