North Texas Giving Day – September 17, 2015Tone It DOWN! Campaign Kickoff
Because of your valued support in 2014, we are now the proud owners of some REALLY BIG CHIMES! They made their debut in our spring concerts, and yes, they really are taller than we are!
Continuing our BIG fundraising theme – help us live large and “Tone It DOWN” with a beautiful bass Bb2 bell to complement our B2.
September 17th is North Texas Giving Day. Make a donation to Concert Bells go a bit farther and help make the Bb2 a reality!
On this day only, all tax-deductible donations of $25 and above through www.northtexasgivingday.org will be increased by a portion of the over $2 million available bonus funds and prizes... meaning $25 can become a lot more than $25!
Every gift made between 6:00 am and midnight on September 17th will be dedicated to “Tone It DOWN!” and the purchase of a new Bb2 bass bell.
Follow this direct link to our giving page.
We hope to see you there on the 17th!

Thank you to everyone who has had wonderfull things to say about Concert Bells.
I heard and INCREDIBLE concert last night by the Concert Bells of Fort Worth. Their technical mastery was astounding and their musicianship was first rate. They didn’t just play the music. They WERE the music. Congratulations to music director Stephanie Rhoades and the entire group!”
Handbell Composer and Clinician
The Concert Bells of Fort Worth “wowed” us all with an exciting concert during the Area IX Festival. Their performance was clean, sparkling and oh, so musical! Kudos to every ringer AND the director!!”
Anna Laura Page
Handbell Composer and Clinician
Concert Bells of Fort Worth, under the direction of Stephanie Rhoades, gave a concert that was nothing short of brilliant. With their concert titled “Young at Heart,” they wowed the audience with their musical precision and mastery. The selections they shared were a perfect combination of toe-tapping, young-at-heart music with occasional unexpected antics blended with pieces displaying the depth of soul the entire group has for music and handbells.”
Area IX 2010 Festival
Concert Bells ring with an enthusiasm and sparkle that engages the listener. Precision in the execution of simultaneously rung notes and accurate ringing clear the way for their beautiful musical expression to thrill the listener. The ensemble’s dynamic palate extends from the softest of pianissimos to the loudest fortissimos. Concert Bells are a “must hear!” I am very proud that I am a part of the history of this outstanding ringing ensemble!”
