Have you ever wanted to try ringing handbells? Are you a long time ringer that would like the opportunity to polish your skills? Karen James, renowned bell clinician and member of the Vermont Handbell Society, will be giving a handbell skills clinic on Saturday, Sept. 8th at the Walpole Congregational Church! The clinic starts at 10, goes until noon, and is appropriate for all levels from beginner to advanced. Attendance is free, sponsored by the Saxtons River Ringers and Walpole Handbell Choir.
From basic stance to holding the bells, to using your whole body, we will spend a couple of hours exploring ways to experience some fun, easy, creative ways to make simple ringing of the bells sound and look FANTASTIC! No prior musical training is necessary, if you can count to four and know your right from your left, that’s all you need to see what is possible!
