From Ohio Conference, posted by D Kovacs 10-26-2016
Sorry for this late notice. If you are in the Toledo, Ohio area, I hope you can go (I wish I could!) and if not, do watch via the link given. And watch for a feature on this concert and the rings, after the fact! DLK
The Toledo First Church will welcome 185 ringers from 14 academies from across the country next week for their annual RingFest. Toledo Junior Academy’s 12 ringers will also be participating.
RingFest clinicians this year include: musician and conductor Michael J. Glasgow, returning for a third year, who has arranged a “mashup” of Twila Paris’ Come Emmanuel with the hymn O Come, O Come Emmanuel specifically for RingFest; it has already been accepted for publication. Also handbell solo artist, composer and teacher Michèle Sharik.
