The Bronze Foundation

Group PhotoThe Bronze Foundation is Greater Toronto's auditioned community handbell choir. The group aims for a high level of concert performance of a wide range of handbell repertoire. It gives advanced level ringers the opportunity to grow together, to challenge themselves and each other, and to share their love of handbells and handbell music with concert audiences throughout Ontario.

The group has evolved through several stages since its founding in 2001 under the directorship of Rick Humphrey. Currently, The Bronze Foundation performs on five octaves of Malmark handbells and three octaves of Malmark handchimes, courtesy of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Scarborough, Ontario. This season, the group's ringers hail from Waterloo and Brantford to the west, Whitby and Burlington to the east, and Newmarket to the north. J.-C. Coolen has directed the group since 2005.
