Dear Friends of BBR,

It’s been a long but exciting winter for BBR–did you see our appearanceon 48 Hours?–but at long last spring has arrived in Boston in earnest.

With warmer weather comes anticipation for our spring and summer concerts and events. This year, we’re celebrating the old and the new as we continue commemorating our tenth anniversary.

By now, the Boston Handbell Festival has become an annual tradition for many musicians and fans in in our area. We love co-sponsoring this beloved event (which this year features Raleigh Ringers director Dave Harris) and we also enjoy commissioning new works, which is why we’ll be premiering a brand-new composition by Michael Helman at a day-long celebration at beautiful Salem State University that also features a workshop with this renowned composer.

Suitably, our tenth-anniversary concerts have the theme of “Reflections.” Come see where we’ve been and where we’re going at a BBR concert this spring!

–Norah Piehl
Executive Director, Back Bay Ringers
