A Connecticut Handbell Ensemble

Shoreline Ringers and COVID-19

Shoreline Ringers has always sold our CDs exclusively at our concerts, but 2020 has brought many new things to all of us (including socially distanced ringing.)

If you were waiting for your chance to purchase a CD at a concert, and missed the opportunity because everything got cancelled, we have good news.  You can now purchase any of our CD’s online, even the ones that are not available for digital download.  We have set up an online store through Square.  Buy a CD (or several!) and we will mail them to you anywhere in the USA.  (Sorry, we aren’t prepared to ship internationally at this time.)

Shoreline Ringers is Alive and Well, and rehearsing!

Shoreline Ringers, Inc. has been amazing audiences with what handbells can do since 2006 when it was founded. The group is composed of 13-16 ringers whose professional backgrounds include computer, social work, teaching, ministry, chemistry, and more!

Shoreline Ringers first began rehearsals in January 2006, and became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in September 2006.  Since then, Shoreline Ringers has wowed audiences with the magic of handbells through concerts and educational events, even performing at Carnegie Hall and with the US Coast Guard Band at their annual holiday concert.

Meet the members of Shoreline Ringers, Inc., who come to us from all over CT and many different backgrounds to create a fantastically unique ensemble.
