Directors' Read and Ring Workshop

A fun, single-day sight-reading and new-issues session.
Offered in the Winter

read_and_ring_sm.jpg

Directors, here's your opportunity to sample over fifty 2013-2014 Level 1-3 new issues from our handbell publishers. Susan Berry will lead you through a wide assortment of selected titles, including original works, arrangements of hymn-tunes, gospels and spirituals, and music for contemporary worship. We will also introduce seasonal music for Lent and Easter.

This workshop is intended for handbell directors, but ringers may enjoy it as well. Please encourage a favorite ringer to join you!

Handbell Services will have a display of assorted music, teaching resources, and supplies available on site; browse a large selection of unique bell-related gifts for you and your friends. Music from the ringing sessions throughout the day, as well as the rest of the music on display, will be available for purchase at 20% off regular price.

Register early, as this event fills up quickly! You must register at least one week before the event; this allows us to order enough music and obtain handbell sets, enabling everyone a chance to read through all titles.

Come for ringing, fellowship, networking, and browsing!

This year we are offering two Read and Rings!

 Register now at our EventBrite page!  Space is limited!
