Our Ringers...

Patty Yates (Strongsville, Ohio) has been ringing handbells since 1999. She is a founding member of Celebration Ringers and serves as Director. However, the group is very much an ensemble with all the members “chiming in” with ideas to make the music the best it can be. She also directs the Celebration Teens Handbell Choir and is a member of Strongsville Methodist Handbell Choir. She directs three youth handbell choirs at St. Joseph and John School and the adult handbell choir at St. Joseph Church. She has a degree in applied music from the University of South Florida and is a Handbell Musicians of America nationally certified Director of Handbells. Her hobbies, when she is not ringing, are her grandchildren, gardening, composing bell music, and traveling to handbell events with her equally enthusiastic husband, Rad.
