Summer of Bells!!!!

Posted By Derek Nance on May 1, 2013 |

It is May 1st, and Bryce and I are excited to announce our ambitious summer plans for the blog.  Over the next three months we will be reporting about bells from all around the nation, bringing you stories about bells and fascinating new performances.  Some of the highlights of our summer plans include:

  • Participating in the Virtuoso Experience presented by the Raleigh Ringers and Dr. Payne
  • Performing in the opening concert at the Handbell National Seminar
  • Hanging around National Seminar interviewing some of the biggest names in the bell world
  • Live streaming several concerts
  • Traveling across the country meeting all of you

And of course we will be sharing the entire experience with all of you here on the blog.

To kick everything off we will be live streaming Bell Appeal‘s concert, entitled “Bella Voce” this Sunday at 2:30PM Pacific time.  This San Francisco based group performs many of their own original arrangements of pop tunes, and this concerts will include arrangements of Pink, Maroon 5, and Macklemore.  We have been impressed with their performances at many of the Area XII events around California, so we are excited to see their entire concert.  The link to the video will be posted on this site, as well as our Facebook and Twitter closer to the event.  Stayed tuned.

We are both super excited about this summer!  If you see us out at any bell any events, be sure to come by and say hi.  Also, if you know of a cool event going on this summer we should know about, send us an email at
