The Golden Dance Live: In Concert
Handbell Solo Artist Michèle Sharik is internationally renowned for her graceful and flowing performance style. Join her as she weaves a tapestry of story and music, combining both beauty and strength in her own dance-like choreography that takes the listener on a journey from Renaissance England to the Golden Gate, and all points in between.
Filmed on a single, stationary camera, this no-frills "bootleg"-style video nevertheless perfectly showcases Michèle's artistry and finesse.
The concert features Dr. Valerie Sterk on piano and was part of the Arts of St. Bede's concert series, recorded live April 17, 2010, at St. Bede's Episcopal Church, Menlo Park, CA.
