Who We Are
Formed in 2004, this auditioned community handbell ensemble performs in south-central Pennsylvania seasonally during April & December. We've played in churches, nursing homes, and even the White House (see photo below). The group numbers fifteen on a regular basis and rings on seven and a half octaves of Malmark handbells, six octaves of Malmark Choirchimes, four octaves of Petit & Fritsen handbells, and two octaves of Schulmerich Silver Melody Bells
and is under the direction of Artistic Director, Dr. Shawn Gingrich. Visit our YouTube Channel to view content and subscribe.
