Winter Directors' Forum and Read & Ring


    Join the Emerald City Ringers on Saturday, January 28 at Grace Lutheran Church in Des Moines, WA for a Directors' Forum and a Read & Ring. Handbell directors from the region are invited to attend the morning session from 9am-noon. Ellie Hodder will discuss ringing with less than a full choir, and Marlene Anderson will share her experience with fundraising and touring. We will also have plenty of time for networking, Q&A, and information sharing.

     The afternoon Read & Ring will feature music from this June's Area 10 conference. All directors and ringers are invited and encouraged to attend. Get a head-start on music preparation for the festival. Limited quantities of music will be available for purchase at the end of the Read & Ring session.


     Registration for the Directors' Forum, which includes lunch, is $10, and the fee for the Read & Ring is $5. To register, email, or call 425-269-8182. Please register before time runs out - we must have a final count by January 9 so we can order music.
