Audition Applications for
Ring Sarasota is looking for advanced handbells ringers who are interested in joining us for our 11th season.
Auditions for open positions are normally held in the spring, however Florida’s current “Safer at Home” order has kept us from setting a date and time for auditions. Please check back to this page for updates. Anyone who fills out and submits an application will receive follow-up information once auditions are scheduled.
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.
