Director Susan Carscadden-Mifsud began ringing in 1973 thanks to her grandmother, Mary Black, who fostered her entire family's interest and involvement in ringing. The bells on which the Bellissima Ringers play were a legacy left to Susan by Mary. Bells have become the focus of Susan's professional life, as she operates her business, Handbell Graces (http://www.handbellgraces.com). Contact Susan.
KC began ringing bells in 1990 as a charter member of Jubilate Bells at Metropolitan United Church. A founding director of Original Kids Theatre Company, she has directed close to 50 musical and theatrical productions in Southwestern Ontario. KC is also a piano teacher, accompanist, and proud member (along with Adam) of Bells Ablaze, a community-based, auditioned bell choir directed by Susan.
Cathie Banks is an accomplished ringer and director. As well as directing two church handbell choirs, she began the first elementary school handchime choir in London, a program that has involved over 200 children.
Bell ringing is just one of Adam Guthrie's many musical endeavours. He is an accomplished violinist, and a charter member of the Amabile Boys Choirs. His ringing experience began in 1992 with the Teen Handbell Choir at First-St. Andrew's United Church.
