October 2013 Newsletter

Dear Friends of BBR,

When it still feels like summer even though the calendar says October, it’s easy to forget that the season of snow, ice, and holiday music is right around the corner.

But the Back Bay Ringers haven’t forgotten–we’ve been rehearsing Christmas music since just after Labor Day, and we’re eager to share our holiday program–Comfort & Joy–with audiences around Boston this December.

Please mark your calendars now for these holiday performances–we especially hope to see you at our CD release concert and party, the first big event of our tenth anniversary season!

August 2013 Newsletter

Dear Friends of BBR,

BBR is on the move! A couple of weekends ago, we cleaned and organized our storage area at Old South Church (including boxing up a lot of sheet music) in preparation for our impending move across Back Bay to First Church in Boston.

We’re feeling a bit bittersweet about our move–Old South has been our rehearsal home since our founding ten years ago–but we are excited about this new chapter in our history. And we look forward to returning to Old South for our co-production of the annual Boston Handbell Festival next May!

Once we get settled in at First Church (see below for location/directions), we want to invite you to come see us there, for two events happening later this month. Read on for all the details!

We look forward to seeing many of you there!

June 2013 Newsletter

Dear Friends of BBR,

June has arrived, and so has the summer-like weather in the Boston area! We like to think that the Back Bay Ringers will be heating up the spring and summer performance calendar in our area in an entirely different way, with varied and energetic concerts in Cambridge, Lexington, and Beverly next weekend. Read on for all the details, and make plans to see us before we go on our summer hiatus!

We look forward to seeing many of you there!

April 2013 Newsletter

Dear Friends of BBR,

Spring’s been slow to arrive here in New England this year, and so (I confess) has been this issue of our newsletter.

Now, however, spring is making its appearance in earnest, and soon so will we! Please read on for listings of Back Bay Ringers’ upcoming solo performances, as well as information on the seventh annual Boston Handbell Festival, which has become a spring tradition for many New Englanders.

We look forward to seeing many of you at our concerts in the Boston area this spring!

December 2012 Newsletter

Dear Friends of BBR,

As I sit here at my desk this morning, snowflakes are falling outside my window. It’s like Mother Nature knew that December has arrived . . . and that BBR’s “Let It Snow” concert series starts tomorrow!

We know December is a busy month, but it’s also the perfect opportunity to share some of the most beautiful music we know. Please make plans to attend one of our concerts this season–I’m sure if you do, you’ll appreciate the rare chance to sit quietly and just take in the wonder and magic of the winter holidays.

On our website, you’ll find additional details about all of our appearances, including the option to purchase tickets online for our solo concerts. Don’t forget to order your BBR CDs as well–they make great stocking stuffers.

Our best wishes to you and yours for a joyful and safe holiday season!
