About

RingersTimberline strives to broaden the appreciation of the art of handbell ringing in the Denver Metro area by providing excellent concerts and education for diverse audiences. The volunteer ringers are from the Denver Metro area and come from a variety of backgrounds. Having a passion for ringing handbells, they play a spectrum of music including pop, musicals, and classical music for: workshops, concerts, weddings, and special events. They ring 5 octaves of Whitechapel handbells, 5 octaves of Malmark handchimes, and 3 octaves of Petit and Fritsen handbells.

Timberine is a community group that began in 2003, whose funds are raised solely by community donations and ringer contributions. Thanks also to Zeta Zeta Chapter of Delta Omicron International Music Fraternity for their support. national website

Auditions
Auditions are held each semester and upon request. Ringer skills include: playing level 3-5 music, rhythm, and various handbell techniques. Our weekly rehearsals are educational, fun, and enjoyable, and ringers are encouraged to prepare on their own during the week.  Rehearsals are open to the public. We also have a need for substitutes to fill-in during rehearsals or performances for individuals who are ill or traveling. Please contact us if you are interested in either an audition or being a substitute! audition@timberlineringers.org
