We are a community handbell choir dedicated to taking our music ministry to senior citizens and other audiences in Northeast Ohio. The group was founded in 2000 by 6 people from Strongsville who rang 3 octaves of borrowed handbells, and has since grown to 17 people from 7 communities. We own 5-1/2 octaves of handbells and 7 octaves of hand chimes with percussion instruments, keyboard, PA system, and a trailer. We rehearse 2 plus hours a week on Saturday mornings and/or Monday evenings, 11 months a year, taking a break in July. The group has traveled to cities in 6 states to participate in handbell festivals. We typically do 8 to 12 concerts twice a year. In 2010, we expanded our ministry, adding travels to area churches to complement their worship programs. Also in 2010, the Celebration Teens handbell choir was formed. Unfortunately, the Teens graduated from 6 high schools in 2014 and went to college. In 2016, we did workshops and concerts for new handbell choirs at Medina Presbyterian Church and New Rumley United Methodist Church.
