Siskiyou Summit Handbell Conference
March 27, 2021 9:00 AM Pacific
Barb Brocker, Ellie Hodder, Phyllis Tincher and Diane Barnes
It is time to start thinking about getting back into the swing of ringing!
The event will begin at 9:00am PDT and offer 4 class sessions spread out over the morning and early afternoon. There will be a break for lunch/snack and closing with a virtual concert involving Area 10 soloists, ensembles, and full choirs. The event will be livestreamed with pre-recorded videos of the workshops with time for interaction with the clinicians using the CHAT feature on the stream relayed to a “ZOOM” set-up of a panel discussion with the clinician.
The Area 10 Website will have a link to the Live Stream ready for use on March 27th at 8:30am. There will also be links to PDF notes for the classes and a link to donate to AREA 10 to help support the operating expenses of putting on a virtual event.
Hope to see you all on March 27!
To Register: contact Diane Barnes, Area 10 Events Chair.
Please let us know that you are planning to attend and from where you will be joining the livestream.

Coppers Classic – About
Coppers Classic is a massed ringing event for advanced coppers handbell musicians held annually in October, in Portland, Oregon with participants from all over the United States and Canada. Musicians rehearse for three days, Friday through Sunday and present a public concert on Sunday afternoon.
Our handbell musicians are solidly coppers musicians. They have good handbell skills, a commitment to their ensemble and are the backbone of their choir. Passion and the desire to learn and grow as a handbell musician are the qualities that characterize those who will have a great Coppers Classic experience.
Do you love handbells? Do you have a passion to learn, to create the most musical experience of each composition and to celebrate your music making with others who share your joy? Then Coppers Classic is definitely for you!
ELLIE HODDER is the Founder/Director of Coppers Classic.
