Join us for our next Member Chat – Details Below!

Have you ever wished you could talk directly to a handbell “celebrity” and ask them questions? Every other month, we host a one-hour live chat with a personality from within our talented ranks. Everyone will have an opportunity to submit questions in advance. Many of you will be able to tune in live and participate. And, all members will be able to access the video on the Handbell Musicians of America website after it airs live.

Ringing the National Anthem

Saturday, May 13, 2017 • 1 p.m.  Eastern

Join us for the May 13 Member Chat, which will be a panel discussion about ringing the National Anthem at major sporting events.  The panel members are Jerry Hill (Area 3 – Washington Nationals), Jeremy Springer (Area 9 – Texas Rangers), Phyllis Kirk (Area 6- University of Alabama Blazers) and Jeannine Holt (Area 11 – Denver Nuggets).  Please join us to learn how the panel members planned their respective events AND how much fun these events were for the ringers.  We’ll cover the logistics, organizaton and publicity and then take questions from anyone who would like to know more about planning their own National Anthem event.

Registration for the next MemberChat is now open. The first 23 members to sign up will be sent an access code for the broadcast and instructions for logging on. Although the live broadcast is limited to 23 participants, we will maintain a waiting list and all members are welcome to send their questions for the panel to membership@handbellmusicians.org with the subject line “MemberChat Question.” They will answer as many as they can.
