The challenges of logistics and traveling three hours in fog and rain, the pleasure of “bonding” time and the excitement of ringing with 22 other handbell choirs were all part of our experience the weekend of February 22 and 23 at the LeGrand Center in Shelby, NC. We rehearsed on an intensive schedule Friday evening and Saturday morning, culminating in a short, well attended sacred concert at 2:00 pm Saturday afternoon in the very large conference (rehearsal) space.
