Strikepoint, from Duluth, Minnesota, is a church-based, community/professional handbell ensemble. Led by artistic director Bill Alexander, this eleven-member group performs in a directorless ensemble setting. College students and community members have joined with selected ringers from the five bell choirs at Duluth's First United Methodist Church to provide a consistently high level of musicianship since Strikepoint began in 1984. Strikepointers are often high school students, and sometimes as young as 13.

Annual summer tours have taken the group throughout the continental U.S. as well as to England, Scotland, Wales, Japan, Canada, Hong Kong, Sweden, and Hawaii. Strikepoint has been the featured performer at numerous Area and National Handbell Festival Conferences , as well as four National Handbell Directors' Seminars.

Strikepoint rings 6-plus octaves of bronze Schulmerich handbells, 7 octaves of handchimes, 2 octaves of Silver Melody Bells, and 3 octaves of Petit and Fritzen handbells, along with a range of other instruments as needed.

Noted for capturing the enthusiasm of audiences with a dynamic style and accessible music, Strikepoint's concert selections can range from Bach to Lady Gaga and include music both familiar and new. Strikepoint's newest recording, “Reflections", is simply "music to calm the mind and restore the spirit."
