Hudson Valley Handbells, a site for English Handbell ringers, directors and listeners in the Hudson Valley Region of New York State

Welcome to Hudson Valley

OUR MISSION STATEMENT: The primary mission of the Hudson Valley Handbell. Festival Conference (HVHFC) is to promote the art of handbell ringing by providing an opportunity for local and/or visiting handbell choirs to perform in a massed, divisional, and solo choir framework, and present a concert to the general public. To further the art of handbell ringing, HVHFC may, at the discretion of the governing body, also provide financial assistance to handbell choirs or members of the Handbell Musicians of America who are in serious documented need.

Quotes from previous year's participants:

"Really enjoyed the festival!!!  Our group all thought the conductor was fantastic and loved her directing!!!!!
Thanks for a great festival!"

"Both my choirs had a great day. Some of them made it to church today - not too many, but neither of them were playing today - my kid's choir was!!
The choir that had never been before could not get over how great it was, and the old hands said it was the best one yet!!
They were all full of praise for the conductor and the overall organization of the whole day.
Thank you to the organizing committee for a good job well done."
