Musicians learn ringing technique and develop music literacy skills as they prepare to participate in worship several times a year. From time to time, older youth may be recruited to form small ensembles, rehearsing as needed to play for worship or special events. Our first rehearsal is open to all who would like to try ringing—come join us! Contact handbell director, Alice Real, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-784-8192 to sign up or for more information.
