An auditioned group, formed in 2013, comprises the most experienced and top-notch handbell ringers whose everyday’s life is full of handbell music. Ensemble’s artistic director Emily Li is a conductor of many handbell groups in Hong Kong and Singapore and actively performing as a handbell solo artist.  She is also a Chairperson of Handbell Association of Hong Kong and the artistic director of Hong Kong Handbell Academy.

The co-operation between Arsis handbell ensemble and Hong Kong Handbell Association started in 2014 when Arsis was touring in China and had a chance to give a concert also in Hong Kong. The concert in Tallinn is a symbol of friendship and love for handbells, which brought two parties, so far from each other, together. Arsis handbell ensembles can be heard in the concert as well.
