Festival: Salmon Creek United Methodist Church - 3rd Annual Bells of the Cascades Handbell Festival
Join us for this fun and educational event, hosted by Bells of the Cascades! Challenge yourself, learn new skills, and meet musicians from around the region. The festival will include optional individual group rehearsals and massed rehearsals, with a free public concert. We are not offering classes this year, in favor of more rehearsal time with Alex!
Be sure to invite your friends and family to the free public concert in the evening!
