Back Bay Ringers

Event Date: 
Sunday, December 2, 2012 - 2:00pm
Under the leadership of artistic director Griff Gall, Back Bay Ringers (BBR} has grown into one of the country's most innovative handbell organizations.. BBR is an advanced, auditioned, community handbell ensemble based in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 2003, BBR has quickly developed a reputation for excellence, regularly performing at such Boston-area landmarks as Faneuil Hall, Symphony Hall, the Boston Children's Museum, and the Prudential Center. Back Bay Ringers has also performed in festivities associated with the 2004 Democratic National Convention as well as the Boston Marathon, as well as ceremonies associated with the tenth anniversary of 9/11. BBR's first recording, Merry and Bright: A Celebration of Carols with the Back Bay Ringers, was released in 2007. The ensemble's latest recording, Perpetual Motion, was released in the summer of 2010. BBR is committed to preserving and promoting Boston's key role in the history of our instrument. The first community handbell ensemble in the United States was founded by Beacon Hill resident Margaret Shurcliff in the early twentieth century. More than a hundred years later, Back Bay Ringers is proud to honor that tradition and carry it into the twenty-first century by exposing new audiences to handbells, in Boston and beyond. Ticket Prices: $15 (Stu/Sen $14, Mem $12 Child U12 $8)
