Solo Performance Opportunities 

Area 12 is now accepting applications from handbell groups, small ensembles or soloists wishing to perform a mini-concert at the Red, White & Bells Conference in Las Vegas in July 2020.

There are several performance opportunities available, and any group or individual affiliated with an Area 12 membership is welcome to apply.

Application Process:

To be considered for a concert slot, please email Marquise Usher at bayarea.area12@handbellmusicians.org indicating your interest in performing at the conference.

Once your initial email indicating your interest has been received, you will receive a response in order to coordinate submission of recorded materials in support of your application.

A recording(s) of your group or individual performance is requested as part of your application materials. Recordings may be mailed via CD or submitted as MP3 files or YouTube links. Though DVD or video of your group’s performance is not required, it is strongly recommended in order to give the panel a good sense of your capabilities.

The deadline for groups/small ensembles/soloists to apply is April 17, 2020.

Applicants are especially encouraged to propose a repertoire in keeping with the conference theme.

Groups will be selected by an adjudication panel based on the following criteria:

  • Unique and appropriate repertoire
  • Exceptional performance ability
  • Technical ability
  • Musicality

Questions about solo performance opportunities? Please email Marquise Usher at bayarea.area12@handbellmusicians.org.
