Notes:

The Spring Ring provides an opportunity for ringers to meet, share experiences, have fun, and develop musicianship and ringing skills. The event is open to all ringers; individuals, small groups, partial, and complete choirs are all welcome, as long as the choir or director has a membership in Handbell Musicians of America.  Cost is $15 per person.  Youth choir members are welcomed, but they must be accompanied by chaperones.  Non-ringing chaperones will not be charged a participation fee.

Extra Scholarship Available: The Shoreline Ringers will sponsor $300 in scholarships toward the purchase of music to be used at the CT Spring Ring. Full or partial bell choirs may apply. The maximum scholarship amount per choir will be $100. Bell choirs who wish to apply should do so by March 1.  Please contact Mobby Larson at ct.area1@handbellmusicians.org
