Celebrating 32 Years of Ringing Excellence!
From Bach and Mozart, to Glenn Miller and Leroy Anderson, to Elvis and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the Capital City Ringers (the other 'CCR') continually amazes audiences with their flashy style and musical diversity.
Comments, such as, "I never knew handbells could do that!" and "Wow!" are often heard after CCR's performances. Drums, bass guitar, and keyboards add to the rich, musical texture of handbells and chimes, from classical, jazz, sacred, and blues, to rock-and-roll and original works. Be sure to attend a concert to see (and hear) mid-Michigan's premiere handbell ensemble for yourself!
What they're saying...
"Bravo on an absolutely gorgeous CD ... and, of course, HUGE KUDOS to their director for instilling musicality and finesse into their playing. . . . . . Some descriptive words as I was listening to "Reunir": clean, clear, musical, nice tempos, and very expressive. I LOVE the last two measures . . . WOW!"
Dr. William A. Payn - composer/arranger/conductor, Dept. of Music, Bucknell University
"IT'S SHOWTIME! is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!! . . . just finished listening to your impeccable performance. You are truly one of the very few ensembles performing today who actually make MUSIC in this idiom! . . . Thank you for such a lift at the end of a drab, routine day! Blessings.
