Classical Bells is noted for bringing music to life with their unique interpretative style, a technique they call “ringing in color”™. Each concert features musical selections in a wide variety of genres – classical, jazz, inspirational, even ragtime and swing! This eclectic programming, combined with sensitive musical interpretation, technical skill, informal choreography, and a dash of humor, gives Classical Bells the well-deserved reputation of “Michigan’s Premier Handbell Ensemble”.

This group of seasoned professionals, led by musical director Darlene Ebersole, has performed in concerts nationwide and appeared as featured performers with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Michigan Opera Theater. In addition, they have performed in numerous events sponsored by Handbell Musicians of America, including the National Director’s Seminar.

Classical Bells rings over six octaves of Malmark handbells and seven complete octaves of choir chimes, making their collective instrument one of the most extensive in the world of handbell ensembles.

Classical Bells is dedicated to promoting the artistry of handbells through educational programs, workshops, and concerts in communities, churches and schools.
