The Gateway Ringers is an auditioned community choir, comprised of handbell ringers from the St. Louis metropolitan area. Our mission is to inspire excellence in musicianship and heighten awareness of handbell music. The music we play is a mix of classical, popular, and religious music. The group was formed in the fall of 1995. The Gateway Ringers are members of the Handbell Musicians of America (formerly AGEHR). Gateway performs using five octaves of Malmark handbells and six octaves of Malmark Choirchimes®. The group is currently under the direction of Charles Peery. The group is organized as a not-for-profit organization, and auditions are held every two years.
Two hours for set-up and warm up, electricity for lights, designated space for dressing rooms. Performance space must be large enough for 15 three foot tables plus two sets of chimes. Visit our website for more details.
