GSR performing the National Anthem at Fisher Cats Stadium, Manchester, NH


The Granite State Ringers (GSR) was organized as a community handbell choir by Mary Divers and Joan Fossum in February of 2007.  Their vision was to offer musicians who are committed to the art of handbell ringing a chance to play a variety of challenging music and to promote handbell repertoire to audiences all over New Hampshire.  GSR is made up of ringers from communities throughout New Hampshire including Keene, Rochester, Concord, Meredith and Laconia.  They perform on 5 octaves of Malmark Handbells, 6 octaves of Malmark Handchimes, and 4 octaves of Schulmerich Handbells.  GSR rehearses twice a month at St. Paul's Methodist Church in Manchester NH.
