Every five years, the Handbell Team of North Carolina Baptist Worship and Music brings the Adult East and West Handbell Festivals together for “PraisRing”.
PraisRing will provide a great time of instruction and fellowship for adult handbell choirs led by nationally known clinicians. This event is open to any church, denomination, school, group or individual of like mind and principle.
“We use the festival format exclusively for a selection of repertoire each year. This way, a qualified and respected group of church musicians collectively help me annually.”
“The event helps foster musical and spiritual growth within my handbell choir. It is exposed to other handbell choirs and offers encouragement as it sees and hears other choirs.”
“Spiritually, we have opportunities for development as we minister with our presence in their lives this weekend.”
