See you at National Seminar!

Bells of the Cascades in concert with the Melodica Men

We’re going to Florida!

Bells of the Cascades is thrilled to have been selected to perform at Handbell Musicians of America’s National Seminar in Orlando, Florida in July, 2020.  Our 2019 concert with the Melodica Men was so much fun that we’ve invited them to perform with us as we celebrate 30 years of ringing by performing at National Seminar.  The concert will be July 18, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. (Eastern).  As we get closer, we’ll post information regarding live streaming of the concert.

In the meantime, enjoy this clip from this past June!
