Friends of VHC


The Virginia Handbell Consort, a non-profit community handbell ensemble, is fortunate to own and transport all of its own equipment. Our program's growth is dependent on the generosity of corporate and individual donors from our community.

The focus of the VHC's Friends program is to support the purchase of new equipment and commission music that will expand our current repertoire and enhance the musical experience of our audiences. As we are a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations are tax deductible. VHC thanks you for your support of our ensemble.
