The Raleigh Ringers is an internationally acclaimed, advanced community handbell choir based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Since its founding in 1990, The Raleigh Ringers has been dazzling concert audiences with unique interpretations of sacred, secular, and popular music, including famous rock ‘n’ roll tunes arranged just for handbells. The Raleigh Ringers promotes the art of handbell ringing by presenting entertaining performances of handbell music to the widest possible audience, commissioning composers to create works for advanced handbell choirs, supporting and encouraging fellow handbell musicians, and offering educational opportunities through classes and event sponsorship.
Under the direction of David M. Harris, one of the founders, The Raleigh Ringers has released seven CDs, and two DVDs. The ensemble has performed in 39 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, England, and France.
The Raleigh Ringers use the most extensive collection of handbells and bell-like instruments owned by a single performing group in the world. The current grand total is 35 octaves composed of 377 individual pieces of equipment. The group uses bells by Malmark, White Chapel, Schulmerich, Petit and Fritsen, and J. C. Deagan.
“Dedication, innovation, joy—here are three nouns that can easily be used in the same breath with ‘Raleigh Ringers.’” (Our State Magazine, “Lords of the Ring”)
