Nearly fifty ringers and directors gathered in Memphis for the first annual Read and Ring event, led by members of the West Tennessee Handbell Association Board. The morning-long event was well-paced and enthusiastic, providing an opportunity to ring through the upcoming River City Ring festival selections and to purchase music. There was such a positive response to this event that it will become an annual offering. Costs are kept to a minimum to make it very affordable for individuals to attend.
The River City Ring is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, 2015 at Covenant United Methodist Church in Cordova (Memphis) TN. New this year: there will also be an optional Friday evening component with a reading session led by the clinician, Bob Bidewell, and classes led by the West Tennessee Handbell Association Board.
