The Detroit Handbell Ensemble is pleased to announce our new artistic director, Kyle Webber! If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Kyle has been both a ringer and the associate artistic director of DHE for several years where he worked closely and collaboratively with Brenda Austin. In addition to being an accomplished director and ringer, Kyle is a published composer, arranger, pianist, and organist who brings enthusiasm and positive energy while setting a high expectation of musical excellence. His good-natured humor instills an element of levity that keeps rehearsals enjoyable, yet very challenging.
