Charlie Leftridge grew up on a small farm in Southern Minnesota, immersed in nature and the rural church. In this way, Leftridge came to love both natural aesthetics and hymnody—these elements color much of his unique compositional and programmatic choices. Leftridge writes and directs music for choral and chamber ensembles, often setting to music his original text. He received his Masters of Music from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and serves as the Executive Director of the Carnegie Art Center and Director of Music at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, both in Mankato, Minnesota.
Bonnie is recently retired from over 20 years in public education. She is active in state, area, and national handbell events. In addition to ringing with Twin Cities Bronze, she rings with her church choir (the Mt. Calvary Carillons), directs an adult ensemble, and 3 youth ensembles. Outside of handbells she enjoys spending time with her family. She also enjoys breweries, spending time at the lake cabin, and vacationing. In any other spare time, she likes to read and binge watch various programming (...Only Murders in the Building, anyone?).
How else can I support Twin Cities Bronze?
It takes a lot of support to keep Twin Cities Bronze doing what we do best. We know that without our community of amazing fans behind us, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Nothing has made this more apparent than the past two years!
So how about showing your support! There are so many ways to get involved; from sponsorships and donations to volunteering your time.
