who we are
Founded in 1988, Houston Bronze Ensemble was started as an avenue for Houston area handbell directors to have a place to ring. A lunchtime meeting with only a napkin to write the names of those who might be interested is what started it all. The rest, as they say, is history.
While we have a long history, Houston Bronze also recognizes the importance of building the future of handbell ringing. We offer a variety of educational opportunities designed to meet the unique needs of churches and schools who wish to build or improve their handbell programs. Workshops designed to meet specific needs, mini concerts, and petting zoos are a sample of what we provide to the Houston area handbell community.
Whether it’s through a concert, playing at your wedding, party, or private or community event, conducting a workshop for your ensemble, or presenting an educational program for your school, we would love to share our art with you! Please look through the website for more information about our group and what we offer. Whether it is a concert, music for a party, or a workshop for your ensemble, we look forward to working with you to provide handbell excellence to meet your needs! Over the years, Houston Bronze has commissioned or had several pieces of music written for them. To see this list, click on the button below.
