  • 18th Annual Sierra Spring Ring - Digital Edition

    May 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    Tintabulations is thrilled to announce the 18th Annual Sierra Spring Ring-Digital Edition on May 9th from 2-6 PM PST.

    Tintabulations was so disheartened to announce the cancellation of the Spring Ring that we decided to dive into this internet thing-a-ma-jig and see what we could do.  Thanks to a few tech savvy Tintabbers, we are proud and ready to livestream our event.

    Topics covered during the event include: Musescore, weaving, drumming, rhythm, 4 in hand, and problem solving tough parts.  Finally, this magnificent day will conclude with a masterclass with renowned handbell musicians Michael Glasgow, Emily Li, Tammy Waldrop, and Tim Waugh.

    More information will be coming soon so check http://www.tintabulations.com or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Tintab/

    For now, please check out this video ad for more about all the fun you can have at our first ever Digital version of Sierra Spring Ring event!
