Many thanks to all the wonderful folks who helped us ring in the 2016 holiday season with our Holiday Dreams concerts! Happy Holidays to all!
We are grateful for our loyal attendees who wouldn’t miss one of our concerts. And we have been excited to ring for many audience members who came out for their very first handbell concert. We love interacting with people during intermission and after the concerts and are pleased with all the wonderful questions. We enjoy bringing the music of this unique instrument to new listeners!
The music selections this year include the familiar and beloved Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite, a rousing version of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, and a haunting rendition of God With Us for All Time, arranged by Betty Garee and featuring the gorgeous sound of our Cathedral Bells. These pieces and many more will delight and inspire concert-goers of all ages.
Let us ring in the season for you! We have one more concert:

Thank you for your continued support.
“The New England Ringers brought both a festive and reflective program to the greater Greenwich community to begin the holiday season. Their skill and artistry, combined with a passion for the art of handbell playing, made for an evening that our folks will not soon forget.”
