The goal of this organization is to allow area handbell musicians the opportunity to work with nationally recognized composers and conductors, while expanding their musical skills and technical facility. This year we are honored to work with Douglas Benton. Douglas J. Benton has spent over 50 years as a professional church musician in the Phoenix area. He has served on State, Area and National Boards for Handbell Musicians of America, including Chair of the Director Education Department, and is a frequent contributor for Overtones, including the first major research on Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and Handbell Ringing. He has also directed massed choirs at National, Area, State and Local Festivals, and has been a clinician at international, national, area, and state events. Doug proudly represents the Malmark Handbell Company in Arizona and Nevada and has served on the board of the Central Arizona Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, and the Arizona Chapter of the American Choral Directors Association. He is an ASCAP award winning composer/arranger of music for brass, choir, handbells, orchestra and organ. Currently, he is Director of Music Ministries for Gold Canyon United Methodist Church in Gold Canyon, Arizona, and manages a Performing Arts Series annually for the church, and hosts the Canyon Sounds Series for the Gold Canyon Arts Council. Doug is a most recent recipient of the Donald E. Allured Original Composition Award. His composition, “Alluredia” was premiered at the 2018 Bay View Week of Handbells concert in August 2018.
