Music at the Covenant

We seek to bring the Covenant and Cleveland community a diverse array of artistic and spiritual experiences.

The Beckwith University Handbell Choir

Lend your voice to the Covenant Choir, ring with the Covenant Handbells, play an instrument. Contact Matthew Garrett at to explore opportunities.

The Church of the Covenant has maintained a long tradition of handbell choirs for over 50 years through the distinct sound of its British-made 5 octave White Chapel Handbells.

The Beckwith University Handbell Choir is comprised of college students and adults who rehearse on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm and perform regularly throughout the music season.

Exposure to handbell ringing for children and youth is provided through the childrens choirs, and a special Youth Handbell Choir (9-12) occasionally plays in services.

Prospective members should contact the music director about joining the ensemble. Prior experience in handbell ringing is not required except for a basic level of music reading ability.
