Dear Friends of BBR:
For those of you living in the greater Boston area, you know that Mother Nature has switched gears from a record-breaking winter into summer temps and sunny skies. This can mean only one thing—the Back Bay Ringers’ concert season is here. We’ll be bringing our “Childhood Memories” to you in musical form—from Mary Poppins to the Sound of Music to good ol’ spirituals. Join us on Sunday, June 7 at 2 pm in Hanover, or Friday, June 19 at 7:30 pm in Melrose. If you are out and about in the city that latter weekend, find us on June 20 at 3:30 pm at the Boston Hubbub Festival in Copley Square, or celebrating Boston’s MakeMusic Fest with a quartet on Shawmut Street near Hanson on Sunday afternoon.
We were thrilled to see many of you at the Boston Handbell Festival a couple of weeks ago. If you missed it, check out the profile below of this year’s Choirchime recipient. Our mission includes education, and we look forward to hearing more music in our schools!
