To help promote the art of handbell ringing, the James River Ringers host one adult and one youth festival each year. These massed ringing events bring handbell ensembles from all over the east coast to ring under a notable and talented director. Below are some photos from these events. Click on the thumbnails to see the full versions and slide show.
As you can see from the gallery, handbells are an instrument for the young and old alike. Our adult and youth festivals are a challenging and extraordinary way to improve your handbell skills in a massed ringing environment. Under the direction of a masterful clinician, it is our goal that all participants gain some knowledge or skill not previously attained. Demanding, yet fun, festivals are an exhilarating way to experience the art of handbell ringing.
We encourage ensembles and individuals alike to participate in massed ringing events such as the festivals hosted by JRR. For more information about rates and fees, please follow this link: SERVICES
