Azure Benesh

Azure Benesh was born in Regina and has been a part of the Regina Bell Ringers since the age of seven. She is now a senior apprentice and tries to ring as often as possible. Azure is not only a bell ringer, she is known by many as Maiden Sane of Regina's Pile O' Bones Derby Club. She finds the mixture of sport in the form of roller derby and music in the form of bell ringing to be a perfect combination of art, exercise, discipline and creation.

Ronnie Yee

Ronnie Yee was born in Regina and has been a part of the Regina Bell Ringers since the spring of 2012. He is a beginner apprentice and has chosen the bells as his first musical instrument. Ronnie Yee is a Martial Artist of many disciplines but his passion is in the art of Taiji. In Taiji he has mastered the movements of internal body coordination but finds the external musical rhythms of the bells to be quite a challenge. He hopes to one day find as much harmony in bell ringing as he does in Taiji.

PITA

PITA is one of the oldest apprentice (chronologically) in the bell tower.  She comes to the Regina Bell Ringers with a strong vocal background both choral and solo.

PITA was born in Winnipeg and has lived in Saskatchewan since 1974 (originally Saskatoon, Regina since 1995), with a brief interlude in Ontario. She has five children and five grandchildren, all of whom are music-lovers and musicians. Bell-ringing is one of her latest attempts to try as many musical instruments as possible while still able-bodied and of sound mind (some already question the latter)!
