History

The Circle City Ringers formed in the fall of 2004 after the disbandment of the Indianapolis Handbell ensemble that spring. In the spring of 2005 the group began performing in the community, and elected a board of trustees in January 2006. On 22 May 2008, the Circle City Ringers officially became a non-profit organization. Over the years the group has been fortunate enough to be involved in many unique opportunities, and continues to expand its musical horizons to this day.

Some of the group’s unique opportunities include:

  • 30 June 2007 – Solo concert at the AGEHR Area V SummeRing in Lexington, KY
