Christmas Round the Tree
Ben and Erin began ringing handbell duets in the fall of 1999, giving their first series of performances that Christmas season. The story of the BellTree Duo began with two friends getting together to make music and to further their handbell ringing skills. Out of those early rehearsals grew not only a musical partnership , but a blossoming friendship. As rehearsals and performances continued, it became apparent that Ben and Erin had found a lifelong love that would lead to the ultimate continuation of their partnership: marriage. Continuing their ministry as husband and wife, they enjoy giving concerts and clinics, and have played for worship services, bell choir events, weddings and for the White House Christmas tours.
