UCC Ringers from Fort Worth, Texas. The University Christian Church Ringers ring two five-octave sets of English hand bells cast by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. The bell choir has a long tradition of musical excellence, and is an integral part of the life of the church. The UCC Ringers tour and perform regularly in England, and were the first bell choir to perform at Westminster Abbey. Directed by Rev. Dr. Todd Prickett who holds advanced degrees in conducting from Michigan State University and Texas Christian University, the choir’s recent performances include Bach’s St. John Passion, Mozart’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, and of Patriquin’s Titanic Requiem.
