Sierra Spring Ring
March 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Tintabulations is excited to announce that we are still exploring this internet thing-a-ma-jig and are offering a new 19th Annual Sierra Spring Ring: Digital Edition!
Thanks to a few tech savvy Tintabbers and a generous rehearsal space, we are creating an entertaining and educational online event with ample audience participation.
Ring along at home to our pre-recorded massed ring rehearsals and concert, check out the tips & tricks from each Tintab member/bell position (we’ll help you really “think outside the box”), and join us for a live Zoom study hall (ask us anything, and hang out with friends!).
We will not be creating a virtual bell choir, so no need to stress about recording yourself or even getting out of your pajamas! Just ring along from home either by yourself or grab a few of your socially distanced bell friends!
Music Performed in Massed Ring:
- Despite the Storm, Cathy Moklebust, Choristers Guild, 2-3 octaves catalog # CGB932, 3-6 octaves catalog # CGB933
