Dear Friends and Area 1 Members,
As March comes to a close, I am pleased to report that our Planning Committee is making great progress in bringing you another memorable and meaningful Area 1 Festival Conference this June. We are inspired by hundreds of handbell musicians, industry supporters, and friends who have stepped forward to say “Yes!” to Festival Conference 2022. Thank you!!!
Registration is still open! More good news – we still have room on the ringing floor, in the dorms, and in the classrooms.  There are two great options to choose from: the full, 4-day event OR our 1-day “Taste of Festival Conference” experience.
And if you simply are not able to join us in June, perhaps you will lend us your sponsorship support. Every gift, no matter the amount, adds strength to our mission of advancing the musical art of handbell/handchime ringing through education, community, and communication.
Conference details, including COVID protocols and registration links for the full, 4-day conference and the one-day “Taste of Festival Conference”, are found at the links below. There’s also a link for Sponsorship donations.
It’s time to get back to bells! See you in Hartford.
