Description

In March 1991 Kay Cook realized her dream of forming a communoity handbell ensemble for youth. Her goal was to provide a vehicle for artistic excellence, as well as personal growth and development. Her 36 years of handbell conducting in a liturgical environment, combined with her philosopphy of community outreach, played and important role in creating Desert Bells international. Today, Desert Bells International consists of 5 performing ensembles and has members aged 6 to adult. All muscicians involved in Desert Bells desire to pursue musical excellence and further the art of English Handbell music.

The name Desert Bells reflects the group's "Arizona's Handbell Symphonics", part of the trademark, signifies the innovative nature of the ensemble and its diverse repertoire-tranditional to jazz and classical to rock.
