Kristen Russo has been playing handbells since the age of 17. She has rung her way around New England starting with the St. Joseph Handbell Choir in Bristol CT, to the New England Ringers in MA, to Bells of Joy in Rutland VT, and now to the Shoreline Ringers! She is also a vocalist and sings with semi-professional choirs around CT as well as with the St Joseph Adult Choir in Bristol. Kristen spends her days working at Trinity Solar as a Concierge Team Lead. She currently lives in New Britain and directs the Asbury Methodist Church Handbell Choir in Bristol. Kristen has a degree in Music Education and is waiting patiently for the day when the Shoreline Ringers book their first cruise.
