Lauded by critics as "a rare combination of technical perfection, musical maturity and expression from the heart" and "exceptional by any standard," the Raleigh Ringers bring a delightful reverence to the holiday season. Under the direction of David M. Harris, The Raleigh Ringers have earned widespread recognition as a community handbell ensemble performing both sacred and secular music.

In Raleigh, North Carolina's beautiful Meymandi Concert Hall, RALEIGH RINGERS: ONE WINTER EVENING AT MEYMANDI - airing Christmas Eve at 11:00 p.m. on WTVP-HD - opens with "Sarajevo/Christmas Eve 12/24," the energetic Savatage/Trans-Siberian Orchestra neo-classic. Selections from "The Nutcracker Suite," along with more contemporary holiday favorites, including "Blue Christmas" and "Sleigh Ride," round out the hour and the program concludes with a glorious rendition of "Stille Nacht" (Silent Night).
