Kentucky, Ohio & West Virginia: Fall 2018 Traveling Handbell Workshops
This fall, an experienced handbell clinician will travel to your church or location and lead your rehearsal with your music. Directors will consult with the clinician prior to the event to highlight areas of growth for the choir. Sessions will be available between mid-September and early November according to your rehearsal schedule. The cost for up to a 2 hour rehearsal will be $50 for your entire choir, unless other arrangements are made.
