I had an incredible experience at College Ring-In. Many factors contributed to my adventure – working under Michael Joy as our conductor, meeting other ringers from around the nation, and working with them to create beautiful music. Michael Joy was especially enjoyable to ring under because he brought a different perspective to the music because he was a composer. Being able to see him work with us on one of his pieces, Invocation, was truly a new and eye-opening experience. The amount of energy and passion he brought to the piece was incredible. The next factor that contributed to my experience was being able to see the different ringing styles and ideas of the other ringers that attended the event with me. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and I hope to attend College Ring-In next year!
