In 2002, The Atlanta Concert Ringers held its first rehearsal with much excitement over the prospect of a great musical adventure. Nine years later, we made a fresh beginning with our new leaders, Kevin McChesney (director) and Alice Myers (assistant director) and the outlook is even brighter today! This partnership has already proven to be wonderful for all of us.
Our 10th concert season begins in September and promises to entertain Atlanta and its surrounding areas with fun and joyful presentations. Keep checking this website - or you can check us out on Facebook - for updated information regarding future performances. We hope to see you soon!
