Our Mission

It is the mission of our organization to encourage public awareness of and appreciation for the art of English Handbell ringing through performance and education in both sacred and secular venues.

We will do this by:
  •     Attracting ringers who are dedicated to musical excellence in ringing as an individual and in the context of the ensemble
  •     Providing resources and educational opportunities for area school and church handbell groups and directors


   We are members of Handbell Musicians of America.
