Our Handbells Go Silent
Capital Ringers had been hard at work preparing for our Spring performance of Handbells Rock! It was going to be a tie-dye extravaganza of rock 'n roll singalong music just bursting with energy and FUN. But after our last rehearsal on March 8, everyone's plans and normal routines were upended.
Our Board has voted to suspend all Capital Ringers and Bay2Bay operations, including rehearsals and performances, through June 1. This includes not just our series of Handbells Rock! shows, but performances that Capital Ringers and Bay2Bay Ringers were planning to give at senior care facilities and a music therapy conference in Cambridge, Md.

Toward June 1, we will assess the status of state and federal COVID-19 guidelines and requirements and how we might plan to start rehearsing and performing later this year. 

If you bought a program advertisement or were hosting one of our shows, we prepared a list of answers to your questions but will also contact you directly. This list also includes information if you purchased tickets. But if you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact us at

We know this is an unsettling time, and we wish you and your family and friends health, strength, courage and the comfort of music. We can't wait to entertain you again!

Our last rehearsal on Sunday, March 8

PayPal donations are now possible 

We have added a secure PayPal donation option to our website. Like all other arts organizations, wiping out a season of revenues will strain our capacity to provide entertainment in the future. Please consider a tax-deductible donation by going to our website or clicking on the button above. Thank you.
