The Handchime Ensemble was established in 2012. Playing music with a set of handchime requires a very particular technique as each note is formed from an individual chime thus requiring coordination between the players. The aim of the Ensemble is to enhance members’ ensembleship through regular training. The two ensembles participate in competitions like the Intermediate Section of the School Handbell Competition held by the Handbell Association of Hong Kong and the JSMA Inter-school Competition (Handchime). The teams have yielded fruitful results. Besides, the Ensemble is frequently invited to perform on internal or public occasions, namely Annual Concert of the EdRingers, School’s 45th Anniversary Ceremony, Music Celebration and Easter Service. The Handchime Ensemble has made more students of CNEC Christian College to know more about this wonderful instrument and sparked many students’ interests. Members’ self-confidence is boosted through these amazing experiences.
