Promoting excellence in handbell artistry through

education, & community

Summer 2023 Events

On August 12, the Back Bay Ringers will present a workshop for newer handbell directors. We will explore how to successfully teach and musically execute a variety of techniques, review basic equipment needs and standard bell assignments, and more! Register online or via the link on our Events page.

Later in August, we will host our annual summer ring and auditions. Come read through some new (or new-to-you) music at the summer ring, and consider auditioning for BBR! Dates, times, and RSVP forms are available on our Events page.
