Ring Sarasota, Season 11

Now in its 11th season, Ring Sarasota is making music throughout the Gulf Coast. As the area’s premier handbell ensemble, these spirited musicians captivate audiences of all ages with a unique combination of entertainment, education, and community engagement.

Dedicated to enhancing handbell ringing as an art form, the Sarasota‐based group under the direction of former Navy bandleader Rick Holdsworth showcases over 200 bells rung by 15 ringers to create a symphony of sound with special effects mimicking the piccolo, percussion, chimes, and trombone, even the Tibetan singing bowl! Ring Sarasota attracts member ringers from as far north as Tampa Bay and as far south as Fort Myers.

Season 11 Performance Dates

Highways & Byways

Have you just about had enough of staring at your four walls for the last 9 months…not being able to travel safely…not being able to visit family in other parts of the country?

Well, here’s your chance to join us as we take off on a guided musical tour on the “HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS” of our great country.

Leaving from our base in Sarasota, we will join a hoedown Deep in the Heart of Texas, dance the Tennessee Waltz, give our regards to old Broadway, jive to those California Good Vibrations, sit By the Lakeside in Minnesota, enjoy a Mint Julep with Georgia on My Mind, march to the Washington Post in D.C. and bring it all back home to Beneath the Sparkling Skies of Sarasota.
