I had a lovely red leaf fall across my path, and it reminded me that, indeed, autumn is here, and BBR’s winter concert season is not far behind!  We are busy already with new ringers and an early appearance at the Boston Book Festival, Saturday, October 13 on Copley Plaza, Boston. For the Festival, we are partnering with Brian Clements, Editor of an anthology on anti-gun violence entitled Bullets Into Bells. The anthology was inspired by the shootings at Sandy Hook. For more information about the Boston Book Festival, and to see the full Festival schedule visit the Festival website.

Our connection to Bullets into Bells will continue this spring with our “Season of Giving Back.” Mr. Clements and authors from the book will also appear at our spring concerts and BBR will donate all ticket proceeds and donations to the local anti-gun violence charity, Stop Handgun Violence headquartered in Beverly, MA. More info will be released closer to the date.

We are delighted to release our latest video recording, this one of the piece Jovano Jovanke arranged by Michael Joy.  Scroll down to see the video!

We look forward to seeing you at our concerts in December. Tickets are on sale for all of our events at this link. It’s never to early to purchase!
