Queen City Bronze is a professional, community handbell ensemble based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The group was founded in October of 2008 under the direction of Jennifer Cauhorn, Executive Director of the Handbell Musicians of America. This group of auditioned ringers was formed to increase the understanding and appreciation of one of the world’s oldest and most versatile art forms. In its short history has presented concerts throughout the tri-state area including performances with the Cincinnati Pops, Blue Ash Symphony, and the Cincinnati Men’s Chorus. Our concerts offer an eclectic mix of musical styles representing jazz, folk, classical, spiritual, and original compositions. Through community engagement, professional performances and education, QCB intends to leave a unique musical stamp on Cincinnati and the surrounding area.
