Forté and the Pikes Peak Ringers are once again “Joining Forces” to bring you a combined concert, including favorites like “Sail Away” and “Gabriel’s Oboe.” Come join us for a great evening of fun and music!
Forté was founded in 2007, which means this is our tenth anniversary (or birthday?)! We figure this is reason enough for celebration and can’t wait to share the music (a mix of old favorites and new arrangements) with you. Bring your friends!
Also available on our DVD “Rethink Possible,” the music video for “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” is now available on YouTube! We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
The video was filmed at Bishop Castle, near Rye, Colorado, and features the Piano Guys’ arrangement, which we adapted for bowed chimes (Dillon Ekle), handbell tree (Megan Reishus) and handbells (Luke Nabeta and Tory Marting).
You’re cordially invited to kick off the Christmas season with the Pikes Peak Ringers as we perform many well-known carols, including a special appearance by the Forté Handbell Quartet! A free-will offering will be collected. Read more ›

On Friday, June 10, Forté had the immense privilege of helping to celebrate the career of our friend, Kate Myers. After 31 years of teaching band in Colorado Springs District 11, Kate is retiring in style! Kate threw herself a party in the form of a concert, “That Was Fun! Celebrating Music and the People Who Make It!” For this concert, she invited several local musicians to play anything they wanted, as long as their selection(s) were FUN (for the performers)! Between Forté, the Dreamweavers, and the Pikes Peak Ringers, handbells were well represented!
We had the incredible opportunity to film today at Bishop Castle, near Rye, Colorado. We just have a few pictures for now, because we don’t want to give too much away. If you are ever in the area, this is a great place to explore! Read more ›
