Since 2004. under her leadership, additional handbells have been acquired expanding the instrument 5 octaves, and 5 octaves of handchimes have also been purchased.


Bert also directs a handbell ensemble at City Music Center at Duquesne University and is director of handbells at The United Presbyterian Church of New Kensington.


Not only a director, Bert is a handbell soloist who frequently shares her music ministry with congregations and organizations throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.


A Note From the Director

We welcome all – OPC members, friends, families and visitors – to join us in the Ministry of Music. We have handbell groups to suit people of all ages and abilities. There is no need to audition – you just need some musical ability and a heart for making “a joyful noise unto the Lord.”


If you or your children have an interest or questions, please contact Bert Erickson at:
