    What's the best single word to describe the Christmas holidays? Maybe cheery, charming, charitable, changeless, cherubic, cheeky, or childlike. For something that always stays the same, it is described and experienced differently by all. Tintabulations Handbell Ensemble continues its Winter Concert Series that is sometimes silly, sometimes sentimental, sometimes serious, and sometimes spooky with: “An ____ Ad Lib Christmas”.
    (adj.)

    Reno’s own Tintabulations, also affectionately called “Tintab”, have been thrilling audiences since its inception in 1997. Performing holiday songs, sacred and secular, jazzy and lyrical, harmonious and crunchy on numerous bells and chimes (honestly too many to count!) further enhanced by the addition of flute, violin, drum, cello, and bassoon. The talented musicians who ‘are’ Tintabulations will wrap you in the (adj. here) of the season and make your holiday (vrb. here)!
