Audition

Ring Sarasota is looking for advanced handbells ringers who are interested in ringing challenging music to join us for our next season. Applicants must be able to ring level 3 to level 5 music.

Auditions consist of four main sections:

  • Written application (linked below) covering musical background and handbell ringing experience.
  • Assessment of sight-reading, rhythm, proper form, and technique.
  • Ringing a given selection with the full ensemble.
  • Conversation with the Principal Conductor and Audition Committee about the group’s expectations.

Successful applicants will be required to commit to the ensemble for one year, including regular sectionals, weekly full-group rehearsals, and all concert appearances. The group rehearses on Monday evenings starting with sectionals at 6:30 p.m., followed by full-group rehearsals from 7-9 p.m.
