Houston Bronze Ensemble is an auditioned community handbell ensemble of advanced ringers from the Houston area. Founded in 1988, the group performs on 7 octaves of Schulmerich Handbells and 6 octaves of Malmark Chimes. We also have a variety of other bells and auxiliary instruments including 5 octaves of Petit and Fritsen bells, silver melody bells, orchestral chimes and more. We perform concerts, generally in December and May. Our HBE Celebration Ringers is a subset of the full ensemble and performs at parties and community events throughout the year.
