  • 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
    • How Firm a Foundation, arr. Sandra Eithun. Choristers Guild, 2-3 octaves catalog # CGB305, 3-5 octaves catalog # CGB743
    • Joyful Joyful, We Adore Thee, arr. Arnold Sherman, Agape, 2-3 octaves catalog # 1652, 4-6 octaves catalog # 1851
