Concert Operations Director and Music Director
Neesa Hart started playing bells at age 10 after years of failed piano lessons. She is the Programming Director at the Stafford Regional Handbell Society in Virginia, as well as the administrator of the Society's innovative Bells After School program and the director of the Society's top youth ringing ensemble. An avid fan of handbells in all settings, she is always thinking of bigger and better ways to build the audience for bells. Neesa is also the co-creator of The Great Christmas Ring, a communal mass ringing held in venues around the world each December, and was instrumental in introducing the amazing event to New York City’s Carnegie Hall.
