Classical Bells is noted for bringing music to life with our unique interpretative style, a technique we call "Ringing in Color". TM   Each show 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 artistic director, Darlene Ebersole, has performed in concerts nationwide and  has appeared as the featured performers with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Michigan Opera Theater.
