About Chime In!
Arising from our origins as a family of handbell choirs, we engage people in the joy and sense of community that music fosters through participation and performance.
Guided by the spirit, we become part of something greater than ourselves when we make music together. Through music, we create and build community.
Our lively interactive public performances inspire our audiences to participate in making music with us and to discover through question and answer the mechanics and history of our music.
In the spirit of reaching out to all, we often deliver music to our audiences when they cannot come to us.
We are a cooperative intergenerational community that continues to grow in membership and musicianship. Our informal style and inclusive approach encourage anyone to be part of our family. We welcome and mentor people of any age and of all ranges of musical ability and experience. We find joy and inspiration in making and sharing music together.
