The Westwood Bell Ringers

We welcome back The Westwood Ringers who performed for us in December 2010.

The Westwood ringers home hase is the First Baptist Church of Westwood, Massachusetts. The church's handbell program begain in 1965, when a gift of two octaves of handbells was received.The bells were first used by the young people of the church. By 1970, a third octave of bells was added to the set, and the group expanded their repertoire. They are members of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers, and have participated in many local and national ringing events. Their first major bell festival was at Jeckyll Island, Georgia, where they performed several solos and participated in ensemble ringing with 1,000 other bell ringers from all over the United States.

In the early 1970's, a fourth octave was added to the handbell set. In these years they travelled to festivals in:

  • Toronto, Ontario Canada
  • Amherst, Massachusetts
  • Bowdoin College (Maine)
  • and Orlando, Florida.

Their travels also included a motor trip through six states, with concerts in Pennsylvania and New York.

They have continued to add handbells to their set, and now ring five octaves of handbells and four octaves of hand chimes.
