Virginia Bronze is pleased to announce our new music director, Brian Seemann.


Brian Seemann began ringing in grade school with the youth handbell choir at Whitehouse United Methodist Church in Readington, New Jersey. Brian studied composition at The Boston Conservatory before returning to Philadelphia and majoring in urban planning at Temple University. He currently lives in Washington, D.C., where he is the Production Coordinator for Design Foundry, an event design and scenic company. He has led several church handbell choirs, and from 2013 to 2017 was the Artistic Director and Conductor of the Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble. He is in his second year as Music Director for the New England Ringers. In his time away from handbells, Brian is heavily involved in other aspects of performing arts. He spent four summers marching with the Jersey Surf and Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps, and is currently on staff for the McLean High School Marching Band.

We welcome Brian to the team!
