Welcome!

Read & Ring 2019

UPDATE: Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel the Read and Ring event this year. Thanks to all who have expressed interest. Stay tuned for more opportunities to engage with Bells of the Cascades’ ringing events in the future!

On Saturday, August 17, Bells of the Cascades offers a wonderful opportunity for handbell directors and ringers to read through music for all seasons, decide what you like, and purchase it for your choir to use during the year. Bring your choir or come alone and meet new people!
