Welcome

BELLSYMPHONY
THE BEAUTY OF HANDBELLS FOR ALL TO ENJOY!

 

I welcome you to my world of solo handbells and hope to have a chance to share my beautiful music with you.  For over 20 years I have been performing in handbell choirs helping to bring happiness and joy to all who listen.  For the past few years, I have expanded into the world of solo handbells and I have been having a musical blast.  No matter if I am performing for a public or private event, in churches, banquet halls, libraries, nursing homes  or wherever, my goal is the same; to bring heavenly sounding music to the souls of all who are in my presence.  
 

My musical tool consists of 37 Schulmerich handbells and 39 Malmark Cymbells which I use to make music with grace and style.  Making those bells sing with music is a passion I continue to develop with every additional year I perform.  While I may not be able to explain in words what the magic of handbell music is capable of, I surely try my best to show that sweet, musical magic through sight and sound.  I look forward to sharing my music with you.
 

If you have any questions about my music or bells, or for booking my musical services, please feel free to contact me.  Please also bookmark this page to see the new updates soon to be added.
