Peter Coulombe directs the Old South Ringers, our handbell choir, which plays about once a month from September to June. Some of the ringers have been playing since childhood, others just picked up a bell for the first time this year. Peter loves how the Ringers embody the open door spirit of Old South in its own unique way – everyone has a place at the Ringers’ table. When not ringing, Peter may be found either working as an attorney for the state child support enforcement agency, puttering in his garden, or quilting enthusiastically at his sewing machine. Peter is originally from New Haven, CT, and is a graduate of Yale College and Cornell Law School. Peter moved to Boston in 2000 when he met his partner Steve, whom he married at Old South in 2005.
