About Bells of the Rockies
Bells of the Rockies is an auditioned community handbell ensemble and certified 501(c)(3) non-profit. We play 5 1/2 octaves of Schulmerich handbells, 5 octaves of chimes, and perform music from sacred to secular, from baroque to rock. We rehearse weekly at Faith United Church of Christ in Windsor, Colorado.
Michael Kastner, founder of Bells of the Rockies, recently had to take a work position out of state. Happily, Marvin Crawford has taken on the role of Artistic Director and through his musical guidance the group continues to achieve a high level of musical excellence and entertaining performances.

Our ringers come from many communities throughout the Colorado and Wyoming Front Range. Ringers audition annually to earn the right to join this group of seasoned handbell musicians in challenging music.
