Ring in the Spring 2017

Share This

Join us for a wonderful day of music with two dynamic handbell clinicians. Your day will include mass ringing sessions, a mini-class, shopping, fellowship with bell ringers from across our region, and conclude with a 3:00 p.m. concert.

Church of the Resurrection is located in the southern Kansas City area, 10 minutes south of I-435 and State Line Road. A wide variety of exciting handbell pieces for multiple skill levels has been selected. There is something for everyone!

Final Concert

We have room for 3 choirs to perform one piece each during the concert. If you are bringing a full choir and would like to ring during the concert, indicate that on the registration form (either on-line or on the printed form) then e-mail Gwen the name of your piece and your choir's name for inclusion in the program. Titles are needed by January 15, 2017. We will take the first 3 groups that sign up. Fellow bell ringers make a great audience!
