Promoting excellence in handbell artistry through

education, & community

Christmas with the Back Bay Ringers 2023

Join the Back Bay Ringers in Bedford, Hanover, Boston, and Rockport for our retrospective concert season featuring both classical and contemporary favorites. The seasonal tunes will be brought to life on a dazzling array of handbells, chimes, and other percussion. The concert will look back on many of BBR’s favorite songs from the past several years as we prepare for our 20th anniversary season in the fall of 2024. Tickets can be purchased via the Events page.

BBR will also be performing at the New England Conservatory’s Lessons and Carols service at Church of the Covenant in Boston, on December 8 at 7:00 PM.
