Interview with:  Larry and Carla Sue

  • Bio: Larry and Carla Sue both started learning to ring in 1987… just 6,000 miles apart. They became acquainted on the Handbell Community in 2007, and in 2009 moved to Facebook and Skype. After finding out just how Made for Each Other they were, they became engaged at the Bay View Week of Handbells in 2011. In August 2012, Larry took a trip to pick Carla up in England, and they returned to the USA, first for Bay View, and then to move to California where they now live. Interesting fact: Carla's first night in America was spent in the elegant accommodations in Gate K-1 of O'Hare (maybe you don't want to do this…). They were married in September 2012, and have been spending lots of time learning the eight-bell music that they've been selling at Choraegus ShareMusic.

Interview with:  Nancy Kirkner

  • Bio:
    Nancy Kirkner is a solo handbell artist based in Seattle.  One
    of only a few actively performing concert handbell soloists in the
    country, she specializes in classical music and is known for her grace
    and elegance.  Nancy learned to ring in 1999 and began performing as a
    soloist in 2007.  Handbells were her first instrument.  She currently
    studies piano and musicianship with Janet Anderson, percussion with
    Miho Takekawa, and ballet with Jennifer Carroll.  She also trains
    handbell musicians, lectures about the instrument to community groups,
    and writes articles about handbells at her website solobells.com.

    Nancy has performed as a handbell soloist at Benaroya Hall (for
    Seattle Symphony’s Day of Music), Seattle Art Museum, Asian Art
    Museum, Frye Art Museum, Seattle Public Library, Wenatchee Performing
    Arts Center, Redmond Festival of Lights, and numerous other venues.
    Nancy and her performing partner Janet Anderson are on the roster of
    auditioned musicians for Ladies Musical Club (LMC), Seattle’s oldest
    performing arts organization.  Nancy has served on the LMC board of
    directors and is currently its YouTubist.

    Nancy belongs to Handbell Musicians of America (formerly AGEHR) and
    the Handbell Industry Council.  She is married to John Vice, also a
    handbell musician, who is a retired engineer.  Nancy worked as a CPA
    before retiring to spend time on music and travel.
