Enjoy the Celebration Ringers in the Sanctuary!
The Celebration Ringers is one of six handbell choirs at First Lutheran Church, Colorado Springs, Colorado. The ringers are in grades 9-12. Many have been involved in the handbell program since second grade. At First Lutheran they play for worship services throughout the year and concerts in the community, particularly during the Christmas season. The ringers enjoy playing a variety of music from hymn tune arrangements, to spirituals and secular tunes.

They have traveled in Texas and throughout the Mid-West. Last year’s tour took take them through New Mexico and Arizona. Their 2019 tour will have concerts in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. There are 14 ringers in the group playing on 5 octaves of handbells and 6 octaves of chimes. Along with the bells this year’s concerts will feature piano, voice and percussion. Their director, Joan Kuehn, directs the music program at First Lutheran where she has been on staff since 1988.
