National Catholic Handbell Festival

Join ringers from around the country in the National Catholic Handbell Festival! Learn ringing styles and techniques while preparing repertoire for a festival performance on Monday night. Rehearsals are 9:00 am–5:00 pm on Saturday, July 4, and Sunday, July 5. (There will be special opportunities to view the fireworks on Independence Day and celebrate Mass on Sunday.) The clinician is Philip H. Roberts, director of community choirs at Community Presbyterian Church in Lombard, Illinois. With more than thirty years of handbell and choral conducting, he is a member of the Board of Directors of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers, a member of the editorial staff for GIA Publications, and arranger for the popular books Hymns for Handbells.

The repertoire list will be distributed prior to the festival, and all ringers will be expected to arrive knowing their parts.
