About Us

Shoreline Ringers, inc. is a community handbell ensemble formed as a Connecticut non-profit corporation in September 2006. Our goals are to support the continued development of the art of handbell ringing and promote the ringing of handbells as a legitimate musical art form while educating audiences and increasing their knowledge and appreciation of handbell music through our concert performances. Our handbell ringers, some of whom direct other handbell choirs, have a breadth of ringing experience, and have come together to learn a more advanced repertoire.
Shoreline Ringers is not associated with a church congregation; and, therefore our repertoire can be secular and popular in nature. We highlight a variety of techniques and rhythms in our ringing and promise fun for all. Our group strives to educate audiences in the beauty of handbells as we perform a wide variety of challenging music. The choir rings 5 1/2 octaves of Malmark handbells and 7 octaves of Malmark hand chimes.
