Are you ready to hang with the best the nation has to offer?

The National Honors Handbell Ensemble is an annual event where America's best youth ringers work with Kevin McChesney for a weekend and present a concert of the most challenging repertoire written for handbells.
The NHHE Christmas Edition is new for 2021. We are opening it up for young ringers through age 25.
One ensemble member will be chosen as the Youth Handbell Musician of the Year and receive recognition at the final concert. He or she will be invited to participate in the next National Honors Handbell Ensemble as a featured player. Each musician who participates in the ensemble will also earn recognition and benefits for his or her personal handbell group.
