About

The Alleluia Ringers, just one of Concordia University's fine musical groups, is comprised of 14 undergraduate students who ring 6 octaves (73 bells) and 6 1/2 octaves of handchimes (79). The group is chosen by audition each fall.

Besides performing throughout the United States, The Alleluia Ringers has made 3 tours of Germany, 3 tours of Norway, once to Latvia, and performed twice at national events of The American Guild of English Handbell Ringers (AGEHR). They are also heard on the New Music CDs for AGEHR Publishing - Handbell Musicians of America.

The Alleluia Ringers has appeared seven times with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. This relationship began in December of 1992 when the bell choir performed with the Symphony and noted performers Mel Torm and Maureen McGovern under the direction of Doc Severinsen in a program entitled The Christmas Songs. This program was aired nationally on PBS member stations. The Ringers participated with the Symphony and Symphony Chorus again in December of 1999, 2001 and 2006 under the direction of Doc Severinsen, and in 2007 under the baton of Bill Conti and most recently in 2010 and 2011 with Jeff Tyzik.
