We are in the process of forming a Handbell Choir, and would like your support in purchasing a set of Handbells.
BELLS HAVE ARRIVED
Practice with bells- Tuesday evenings, 7pm in St. Mary's Hall.
For all and anyone interested in being part of a newly forming Handbell Choir. We will be needing:
- Ringers – the heart of a handbell choir.
- Come if you are interested
- Come if you think you can ring a handbell
- Coordination and rhythm more important than musical knowledge or training
- Will teach you all needed skills and techniques
- Young to old welcome. (Junior high through one foot in the grave)
- Interested neighbors and friends
- Director – Come try out if interested, I’d rather ring.
- Substitutes – always good to have a few
- Equipment manager – help take care of the bells
- Financial manager – continuing fund raising for music and Concert Tour!
Possibilities for bells:
- Handbell Concert Choir; 5 – 8 ringers preparing several concerts each year.
- Church Choir for Liturgies
- Solo, duos, or quartet groups
- Ringing simply for fun and (arm) exercise.
- Children's choir.
We have the interest, and we have enough sponsors to go forward. Please send your checks to St. Mary's (or Assumption) and mark them for handbells.
Bells still available, reserve yours now! DISCOUNTED MEMORIALS AVAILABLE!!
