Philadelphia Bronze was established in 2008 at the encouragement of several talented ringers who were in search of a challenging musical experience. Founded as Main Line Ringers, Philadelphia Bronze has since re-branded to include all of greater Philadelphia. It has included ringers from as far away as New Jersey, Delaware and Lancaster, Bucks County in Pennsylvania. These dedicated musicians boast over 300 cumulative years of ringing experience.
Intense rehearsals every Monday evening include focus on precision, expression in movement and meticulous attention to a composer's original intent, particularly when programming orchestral transcriptions. Repertoire includes a variety of genres but always remains true to the original vision of Philadelphia Bronze, that of "elegant energy".
Philadelphia Bronze holds a 501(c)(3) non-profit status. It rehearses at the historic Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge located in Phoenixville, PA.
