The New England Ringers, an acclaimed handbell ensemble, presents an energetic winter program to delight family and friends. Take a journey through rich and complex music, from the serious to the sublime, featuring quirky to quintessential bells.

The 2013 winter program will delight audiences with a selection of pieces that showcase the wide range of music this unique instrument produces. Each ringer uses bells, chimes, mallets, and methods that combine to form a symphony of music in which mysterious and ethereal sections give way to majestic chords and lively portrayals of familiar carols and tunes. The program includes traditional favorites such as "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," a shimmering version of "Silent Night," and, fittingly, "The Joy of Christmas."

These exhilarating pieces inspire a greater appreciation for the handbell among audiences and inevitably elicit the listener comment, "I didn't know bells could sound like that!"
