A Community Handbell Ensemble

Mission

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 "aspiring to bronze" 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 at least one piece at performances (December and June).

Who May Join? -- We want YOU!!

Rehearsals

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.
