There's still time
to register for our Area 10 Conference July 7-9 at Oregon State University, Corvallis.
Registration fee is reduced to $210.
We hope you will be a part of Ringing, Reunions & Remembrances. All the details are in the article below.
Reunite with your Handbell Family and Friends this July for a weekend of ringing and workshops. The early bird deadline has passed - BUT we have decided to reduce the "non-early bird" registration fee to $210.
Housing will be in the Weatherford Hall and taking our meals in Student dinning facilities; by using the student housing and meals your room and board costs will add up to about $50 a day-a bargain compared to hotels. Make you plans now to be part of this exciting weekend with your ringing friends - bring your family, they can explore the Oregon Coast (an hour's drive from Corvallis) while you enrich your ringing skills and reunite with old friends.
This event is sponsored by Handbell Musicians of America.
From our Area 10 Conference clinicians
Hello Area 10 Musicians!
I am thrilled to be coming back to the west after living for nearly 12 years in Florida and North Carolina. I can't be more excited to kick off the next chapter in our lives with an amazing weekend of music making together in Corvallis, Oregon! Brian and I have picked some pieces that will push the limits of our musicality and I know will communicate well our love for this musical art. If you have yet to register, I'm hoping that you can join us after your 4th of July activities for a special AREA 10 Conference July 7-9. Please bring a musical friend with you and I promise to keep the energy high as we make breathtaking music together. See you in under 75 days!

Greetings Handbell Musicians.
It is an honor for me to be leading the Tins and Coppers divisions at the upcoming Area 10 Handbell Conference in Corvallis. We have some great music planned for the weekend, and I am looking forward to working with each of you over the weekend as we prepare music for our final concert. I would especially encourage individuals and choirs who have never attended an area event before to participate. An area conference is a great opportunity to make new friends, learn more about our art through the classes offered, and share in the joy of making great music together through massed ringing. I hope to see you there.
