River City Ringers

Handbell Ensemble


River City Ringers is a community handbell ensemble based in San Antonio, Texas. This all-volunteer group includes a diverse range of advanced-level ringers from across the Greater San Antonio area.

The ensemble was founded in the summer of 2005 by dedicated directors and ringers who had long dreamed of establishing just such an advanced ensemble. Several of the founding members are still ringing with us today!

The River City Ringers of San Antonio first appeared with the Heart of Texas Concert Band in 2017. They add so much to our concerts! We are proud to welcome back our friends to perform exciting, lovely music for this patriotic variety show.
