Knoxville Handbell Festival Ringers
The Knoxville Handbell Festival Ringers is made up of musicians from all over the Knoxville area. Led by Les Beaver, handbell director at Bearden United Methodist Church and Andrew Duncan, Director of Worship at Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church, this diverse group of 13-15 members is passionate about the art of handbell ringing. Using over 100 handbells and handchimes (a five-octave set of Malmark handbells and large number of handchimes) as well as mallets, pads, and other percussion instruments, this group is sure to entertain both visually and musically as the music is brought to life.
