Bring the Ring is a new and fun event in Area 9. For a few hours, you will get to ring through some of the newest music composed and arranged for handbells. With technique and rhythm tips and tricks sprinkled throughout, Bring the Ring will be more than just a reading session. All of the music, instruments, and equipment needed will be waiting for you. All you have to do is bring the ring!

This event has been designed to be a stress-free ringing event for individuals and groups – all are welcome. There is no expectation of perfecting any music; the music will be used to teach various techniques as time allows. Music selections will vary by location; there will be an option to purchase the music at each location.
