Cindy Gronbach


Portland, OR

Cindy Gronbach began her handbell career while searching for a new church choir with which to sing. She started ringing at Savage Memorial Presbyterian Church in 1985. In 1989, she took a conducting class at an AGEHR festival, has been directing Savage’s bell choir since  1993, and has been directing the bell choir at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church since 2014. She is an accomplished solo ringer and has taught several handbell technique classes. Cindy has been ringing with Bells of the Cascades since 1991, she serves on the BOC Education Team, and has also rung with both the Oswego Handbell Ensemble and River City Bronze.

Cindy grooms and boards dogs, and volunteers for the Oregon Humane Society. She also stamps and hand-paints greeting cards. She enjoys spending time with her long-haired Dachshund and being in the yard watching the antics of her chickens, but not both at the same time.
