Saturday, March 30 at 1:00 -- The Back Bay Ringers presents an afternoon handbell workshop for teens in grade 6 and up. Members of the Back Bay Ringers will teach participating teens about handbell ringing as well as how to play a song they will perform together at the end of the workshop. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience a type of musical instrument you may not have encountered before. Come enjoy the musicality of bells!

Back Bay Ringers (BBR) is an advanced, auditioned, handbell ensemble. Under the direction of Griff Gall, BBR has quickly developed a reputation for excellence, regularly performing at Boston-area landmarks such 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 Democratic National Convention as well as the Boston Marathon. In 2016, BBR was honored to perform at the Handbell Musicians of America National Seminar in Rochester, NY, and also made its debut with the Boston Pops.
BBR was founded in 2004 as the nation’s first handbell ensemble dedicated to members and friends of the LGBT community, and it remains open and affirming for the membership, board, and community. BBR performs both as a large ensemble and in smaller quartets throughout the year in both public settings and for private bookings, and annually sponsors the Boston Handbell Festival.
