Back Bay Ringers Perform at the 2016 National Handbell Seminar


The ensemble performed a solo concert at Handbell Musicians of America National Seminar in Rochester, NY in July. It was a great honor to be invited, and we were delighted to present our “Art of Handbell Ringing” program for the wonderful musicians gathered there!

The Whitechapels are back!!!


Pictured here are our three octaves of Whitechapel handbells, out of their cases, and ready for their debut this past summer at National Seminar. They are wonderful! Many thanks to all of the contributors to our successful capital campaign — we couldn’t have done it without you!
