  • 1995- PRESENT Musical/Theatrical Performances – Musical-Dialogue programs show how the ubiquitous bell has been an instrument of Freedom and Peace in many Cultures of the World. These presentations with new and old compositions bring this message to all in attendance and to bring it to others.  These performances were similar to the Arts-N-Ed programs brought to schools, libraries and social groups. School presentations also featured a hands-on workshop in which 20 + students/participants are trained and later join us in the performance. http://www.martinbells.com/
