Kalamazoo Ringers

The Ringers

The Kalamazoo Ringers is the oldest continuously operating community choir in the country.  Founded in 1981, the choir has played extensively throughout Southwest Michigan, as well as touring throughout the Midwest, Ontario, England, and Japan.  The choir is directed by its founder, Janet L. Van Valey and hosted by Grace Harbor in Kalamazoo MI.

The fifteen ringers play a six octave set of Malmark handbells along with a seven octave set of Malmark Choirchimes.  The choir is a member and strong supporter of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, and  the Handbell Musicians of America.  They have attended and served as featured artists at numerous workshops and festivals sponsored by the Handbell Musicians of America.
