Timbré wants YOU! We are currently auditioning Southern California-based (or willing to commute) handbell musicians for our new show “She Dreams the Stars”, featuring music by women composers. The show tells the story of a young woman on an incredible journey of discovery via music and dance, with audio-visual components.

Rehearsals will be twice a month beginning in January 2017, based on Artist availability. There are usually no rehearsals in April. There are no rehearsals in December. Rehearsal location will be a mutually-convenient location to be determined after a full roster of Artists is in place. The goal is to begin performing the show in early 2018.

For a full list of qualifications and more details about Timbré, please go to:

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! I look forward to hearing from you. 🙂
