The Desert Ring
Bells of the Sound and the Desert Bells are teaming up to execute The Desert Ring in Richland, WA, on Saturday, May 14. This year, handbell choirs will choose to be in Tins or Coppers as well as perform in a mass ring, directed by Bells of the Sound's director, Shirley Lindberg. This is a great opportunity for ringers in Eastern Washington, Idaho, and Northeast Oregon to come together for some great ringing and learn more skills in classes given by capable instructors! We look forward to a 2nd successful Desert Ring!
