We are back in full swing! DHE members are enjoying ringing and working together to prepare for December concerts and the Eaton Rapids (ER) Handbell Festival, rescheduled for Saturday, March 12, 2022.

"DHE is excited  to be back ringing in the fall. It has been too long since our bells have been allowed to bring joy to others."
- Artistic Director Brenda Austin

The time for music is now! As was the case with most things, Covid-19 kept DHE’s bells silent for most of the 2020-2021 season but we are looking forward to making music together again. There is something special about ringing together and being able to share our collective passion with enthusiastic audiences that has been missing for too long.
