Michèle Sharik (Handbells)

Born: Ohio, USA

The American handbell player, Michèle Sharik, began her musical career with the flute and studied composition and flute performance at the College Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. She began ringing and directing handbell choirs in 1991 and in January, 2002, she moved to the San Francisco Bay area to join America's premier professional classical handbell ensemble, Sonos. In addition to touring internationally with Sonos, she teaches handbell lessons and workshops and appears as clinician at regional handbell events.
