About Distinctly Bronze

Distinctly Bronze is a massed ringing event for advanced handbell musicians which provides the opportunity to perform on the largest handbell sets available under the direction of a master conductor. Four days of rehearsal lead up to a Sunday afternoon concert which is open to the public. Distinctly Bronze East takes place early in the year, while Distinctly Bronze West takes place in the fall.

About Reaching for Bronze

Reaching for Bronze is a companion event to Distinctly Bronze East for intermediate handbell musicians aspiring to become bronze-level ringers. The event gives participants the opportunity to learn three pieces from the DB East repertoire under the direction of a master teacher and conductor and perform them with the DB musicians on their final concert.
