What is Spring Ring?
Saturday Classes, Massed Ringing Rehearsals, and a Concert:
CLASSES: A place to hone skills or learn something new, Spring Ring has something for everyone! You will have the opportunity to choose two classes from our Class List taught by some of the best teachers we know! Class List
MASSED RINGING: Add your notes to those of over 100 other ringers to make glorious music together Please purchase and prepare the music for Massed Ringing in advance. Our massed rehearsal time is SHORT! Ellie will work on the interpretation of the music, not the assignments or notes and rhythms. Rehearsal notes from Ellie will be sent with registration confirmation.
Although there are four pieces on the massed ringing repertoire list, individuals or full ensembles may choose to sit out of any piece as needed. We want this to be fun and rewarding!
CONCERT: It's more fun to play for an audience! But we need YOU to invite them! 6:00 p.m. at Valley Church Though it is FREE, we will take a free-will offering. Please invite family and friends to the concert featuring YOU!
Table Rental: A limited number of tables will be available to rent for a small rental fee of $1.00 per foot. First come, first served! See registration form to reserve them!
Music Exchange: We will once again have a table where you may lay out music you no longer use. Feel free to help yourself from the display; it is a FREE exchange.
Store: WestCoast Handbell Supply has decided to retire and we will miss the Tully's terribly! We are looking at other possibilities, so stay tuned...
Snacks and drinks: We will provide coffee, tea, and water. Want snacks? Please bring some to share during the breaks!

Dear "Want to be Challenged" Ringer,
This spring we welcome Ellie Hodder as our conductor for the Intense Ring. (Read more about Ellie above.) Ellie has selected an exciting and challenging repertoire for this year’s intense ring!
If you have not participated in this event before, it is a chance to play music under a seasoned director, at a more advanced level than you might experience with your home choir. You will work the pieces up to performance level in only two days, with 4-1/2 hours of straight rehearsal, and a run-through right before the concert: it's intense! But if you love to ring, it's also very fun!
To register for this event, simply click on the Intense Ring Registration link, pay the $25 fee and submit . Assignments will be made as much in advance as possible, but no later than March 15. We want you to have plenty of time to prepare the music. Order your music as soon as you send in your fees. Once you have your music and receive your assignments you can get started making sure you really know your part.
There are no classes involved with this additional activity—just ringing, ringing, and more ringing—but you will learn a great deal in a short amount of time! Fill out the form, wait for confirmation, and enjoy!
