Sponsored by Capital Ringers and Epworth United Methodist Church, handbell ringers from ensembles across Sussex County and the Eastern Shore of Maryland will present the second annual Spring Ring Festival at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 14, at Epworth United Methodist Church, Holland Glade Road, Rehoboth Beach.
This concert is open to the public. A love offering will be taken, and all donations will go to Jusst Sooup, a charity dedicated to feeding the hungry and homeless in Sussex County.
Linda Simms, director and clinician for the festival, founded Capital Ringers, bringing the diversity of English handbells to Delmarva for the past 15 years.
Handbell ringers will participate in an afternoon of rehearsals in preparation for the festival concert. All combined choirs will play massed ringing pieces, in addition to solo pieces that will be played by some individual ensembles. All are welcome to hear the beautiful sounds of handbells in this unique and stunning performance.
