Promoting excellence in handbell artistry through

education, & community

2024 Spring Concerts

Join the Back Bay Ringers handbell ensemble for their spring concert season! Repertoire will include familiar favorites such as “Selections for Porgy and Bess” and “Take Five”, as well as original compositions for the instrument including “Champaca” and “Transitions of the Heart”.  These pieces will come alive on over 7 octaves of bells and chimes, so you will experience these familiar tunes as you’ve never heard them before. A portion of proceeds will go to support Zumix – an East Boston-based nonprofit organization dedicated to building our community through music and creative technology.

Back Bay Ringers will also be performing at the Boston Handbell Festival.
