Ring Sarasota’s 13th season: “I Wanna Be Like You!”
Handbells are often associated with the holidays, Christmas in particular. Ring Sarasota wants to challenge that stereotype, offering selections where handbells imitate other instruments, like the pipe organ or banjo, or musical styles, like pop, big band jazz, or patriotic music.
While any music played on handbells can be enchanting, Ring Sarasota knows that this instrument truly shines when performing songs written especially for handbells. Audiences will be immersed in pop music, feel the excitement of the big band era, and experience the rhythm of Latin music.
