Every other year, Area 12 holds a conference that brings together the ringers throughout its region: from Hawaii and Nevada to parts up and down the state of California. For this reason, the Area 12 conference moves around. During off-conference years, regions hold spring rings, directors’ workshops, and other educational events. And there are always handbell concerts to be found, especially at Christmas time.
To learn more about the Area 12 conference, check the Area 12 conference page for updates as they become available.

Just Past 12th Night
January 6, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Community Church of Sebastopol: 1000 Gravenstein Hwy North, Sebastopol, CA 95472
Join us as we observe a little-known tradition of continuing the Christmas celebration into the New Year. Velocity helps celebrate both the coming of Christ and 2019 with a special concert of holiday favorites (and a few surprises!). This dynamic ensemble is known for creating musical performances that are compelling and entertaining.
Formed in 2001 as a small ensemble (originally with six ringers), Velocity has at the heart of its mission statement the words “have fun.” Since its inception, Velocity has continued to pioneer handbell performance with innovative “concept” concerts. Their performances blend a unique style of humor, scripting, and handbell ringing at its best. A Velocity concert is definitely more than just a concert – it’s an experience!
Don’t miss this amazing group as they literally ring in the new year!
