Impulse Handbell Ensemble, hailed by leaders in the world of music education as “bringing the WOW factor to handbell ringing” and having “such great attention to small details,” is an auditioned group of experienced young ringers from central New Jersey. They often perform challenging repertoire, and tend to steal the show with their incredible rhythmic accuracy and physical coordination. In 2012, Impulse produced a video performance of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” with the help of BuzzFeed.com. The video went viral instantly, and gained the attention of The Huffington Post, NBC’s Today Show, and radio stations across the US and Canada. In 2013, the ensemble was featured on the cover of “Overtones” magazine, the official publication of the Handbell Musicians of America. Recently, they were profiled by WHYY (PBS of Philadelphia) in a ten-minute segment for a weekly show called “Friday Arts.” In the summer of 2014, while on tour, Impulse played the opening concert at the Handbell Musicians of America National Seminar. In 2015, they were a featured concert for both the Handbell Musicians of America Area 2’s (NJ, PA, NY, ONT) adult and youth festivals.
