A Community Handbell Ensemble


We are dedicated to providing the opportunity for ringers to excel through practice together, through education and through performance. Pacific Ringers strives to foster an excitement for handbells within the ensemble and also in the larger handbell community.

What We're About

Pacific Ringers is a Portland-based, adult community handbell ensemble. We are musicians with a desire to ring at our highest potential and to ring with others of similar passion for the instrument. We strive to create a supportive environment where learning and tackling musical challenges is encouraged and growing together as a community of ringers is fun.

The Ensemble

All ringers will have the opportunity to rotate within positions for learning purposes and all ringers will have the opportunity to participate in concerts and other performances.

Who May Join? -- We want YOU!!


Pacific Ringers will rehearse from early fall through June each season. Rehearsals will be held on Tuesday evenings, 7:30-9:15 pm at First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland.
