MOUNT VERNON—The Brewton-Parker College hand bell choir, known as the Baron Ringers, presented their spring concert April 15 in the Gilder Recital Hall on the Mount Vernon campus.
The Baron Ringers are a 13-member group made up of BPC students Kristi Jenkins, Katelyn Pierce, Cynthia Rollins, Erica Miller, Laura Bellisle, Jared Register, Clint Oliver, Steven Hopper, Robert Hilton, Amanda Cann, Matt Barlow, Brett Boggus and Rodney Schramm, and is directed by Dr. Ben Caston.
The Baron Ringers performances varied from beautiful hymns such as “Great is Thy Faithfulness” arranged by Cynthia Dobrinski to exciting and “mischievous" compositions such as “Carillon Capricio” by Barbara Semmann and “Martaletto Madness” by Valerie W. Stephenson. These pieces were also challenging to the performers because they employed different bell techniques.
The community is encouraged to look for upcoming events presented by the BPC Division of Music online at www.bpc.edu under the division’s web pages. The next event will be held Thursday, April 24 at 8 p.m. in Saliba Chapel as the BPC Concert Choir presents their Spring Concert. Admission is free and the community is welcome.

Affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention, the college holds classes on its main campus in Mount Vernon and six external learning centers around the state, including Baxley, Glennville, Liberty County, Newnan, Norman Park and Savannah.
