Handbell Workshop


Event Details


In conjunction with the Sunday, February 18, 2018 concert by Ring Sarasota!, the chapter will host a Saturday workshop on Saturday morning, February 17 at Trinity Presbyterian Church, Clearwater.

Ring Sarasota’s founding artistic director and conductor, Rick Holdsworth will be with us from 9:30 to Noon to work with and gently critique our bell choirs. Rather than our choirs learning new numbers to play in a massed ring event, each choir participating will ring with the others as the audience. Mr. Holdsworth will then offer suggestions and work with each choir individually.

There will be one 5-octave set of bells set up so there is no need for each group to bring bells. Just play a piece that your choir already knows.

This is a different concept but should be valuable and certainly less work for the groups attending—plus no special music to purchase.

If you are willing to bring your choir, or have any questions, contact Tom Huffman (727) 409-8726 or hufftom@aol.com
