Happy Spring!
A Canterbury Bell Tree!


Spring is often a time for cleaning, not just our living and working space, but our minds, our relationships and our social calendars. While you're in there, clear some space to learn something new, make a new connection, or attend something meaningful. We can help.
A Message from the Chair
Laurie Sanders

From time to time, I think it's important to remind ourselves of our purpose. Why does the Handbell Musicians of America exist? I mean, having been taught the basics of ringing handbells, we could spend our days in our local church choir playing for worship services and that would be it. For many of us, maybe that's true. But if we were achieving all that we could simply by doing that, I don't think there ever would have been a need for community groups, or for school groups, or for a Handbell Musicians of America for that matter. While there is definitely an element of making music that is spiritual, as handbell ringers we have created an organization around what we do for a reason.


So let's check the dictionary. Organization: a group of persons organized for some end or work. And Wikipedia (all right...I know that's not a real dictionary, but bear with me here) says an organization is a social entity that has a collective goal and is linked to an external environment. It is the words "social" and "external environment" that I believe are at the heart of why Area 12 exists. And if you consider that at the center of its structure, the word organization has the word organic, you might logically conclude that we're really all about creating a living thing. And the focus of that living thing is a social, external environment in which to make music with handbells.


Okay...enough of that pondering. The point is that Area 12 is here to help our art form live. And we need social situations in which to do that. There are so many times over the years that I have attended an event or a concert and been inspired, excited and moved to tears by what we do. Not to mention the ideas I come away with for future concerts or events. Area 12 is constantly providing opportunities for all of us to experience the excitement and fulfillment of our art form. So get out there and take advantage of it. Attend a spring ring this April or a concert by one of the many fine groups performing in our region over the next few months.


Let's all support the living, social, external environment in which we come together to make music with handbells.

Ten days ago I had the privilege of attending the Guild's Area Leadership Meeting in Portland, Oregon. There are exciting things happening for all of us! Here are some highlights of that meeting.

The national office welcomes three new part-time staff members, Regional Membership Coordinators Jon Snyder (East), Mary Willadsen (Central) and Ellie Hodder (West). Ellie, in Portland, OR, will be helping us grow and go with Handbell Musicians of America! Your area board is looking forward to working with her to make our guild the strongest it can be.
Our home office is producing a new email newsletter, Event Notes, which will automatically list all guild sponsored and endorsed events and members (YOU!) may list concerts/events! See the current and past issues, subscribe, or submit an event by visiting The Guild online. The E-Notes will continue in a condensed format with easy "click-thru" to full articles. The email also contains a monthly "membership reward" offering discounts and special opportunities only for our members! Sign up for Event Notes and E-Notes at 


Renewing your membership has never been easier! You can set up an auto-renewal by logging in to the guild's website. Or you will receive an email notice 60 days prior to expiration (make sure the national office has your current preferred email address!) with a link to renew online. If you need to renew the old-fashioned way, you will received a paper notice in the mail the month your membership expires. If you plan to renew online, do it more than 30 days ahead and save The Guild mailing that paper to you!


AGEHR Music Publishing has a great packet coming out this spring, so remember to purchase yours when you renew your membership or preview and order online by clicking here.


Our National Board Nominating Committee has started searching for qualified candidates to run for the National Board next year. If you or someone you know is interested, or you want more information, please contact me, the national office, or any member of your Area 12 or National Boards.


Finally, The Guild has established the Heritage Endowment Fund which allows the Guild to generate sustainable income over and above membership dues and allows funding for future special projects. It is on the ground floor now, so keep checking the national website for more information on how you can help sustain the guild with a "many hands make light work" attitude!


For next month, I want to feature YOU in my article. Send me an email note by April 25 with one or two lines about your spring handbell experience.  Whether you learned, taught, played, or listened, I want to share YOUR love for handbells with everyone.

Distinctly Bronze Scholarship Winner Special Feature

Ringing at Distinctly Bronze West with Fred Gramann

by Shannon Shaw-Perez


Ninety-one other advanced handbell musicians from the US, Canada, and England and I had the great privilege of ringing under the baton of the astounding Fred Gramann at Distinctly Bronze West 2013. I had the honor of winning the William H. Griffin scholarship. This scholarship is only available for Distinctly Bronze events and is given to one individual, either first time attendee or alumni, to attend Distinctly Bronze East or West. Distinctly Bronze was started by David R. Davidson to showcase handbell music and musicianship in order to help us grow and advance our art. We spend less a week together playing music not only technically challenging but musically enticing. At the end of this event, we present a public concert.  We all strive to be the best handbell musicians we can be. To do this, we need directors that inspire us to grow and push ourselves to new levels. 

  2013 03 Shannon and Fred

Fred Gramann with me, post concert! 


Fred Gramann came to this event this year and challenged us all to pass through the pain and to give our very best. Ringing with Fred at the helm was not only informative but awe-inspiring. I was so impressed when a question was posed about whether Fred was going to conduct a 4/4 measure (that pulsed in 3) in 3 or 4. Fred replied with "both." He then conducted a 4 pattern in his right hand and simultaneously conducted a 3 pattern in his left hand. The room went silent and gasped in amazement as we watched the master at work. Fred is amazing to watch and learn from. He makes you want to watch him.  He is intelligent, energetic, and enthusiastic. He expects the very best because "We are Distinctly Bronze!" He exudes an aura about him that makes you want to give him all your effort and he makes it fun while doing it. He is the first to make fun of himself which proves how human he is. We all worked really hard and it showed in our final concert. If you ever get a chance to work under the baton of Fred Gramann, do it! He will be back in the states at the National Seminar in Portland Oregon this July. Being able to attend this event again is an experience I will soon not forget.

Central California Spring Ring 

with P.L. Grove

Saturday, April 6, 2013
San Luis Obispo, California

Hello CenCal Ringers,

Last month, Bakersfield held their 10th Annual Spring Ring on Saturday, March 9.
Host church, St. John's Lutheran, and Coordinator, Dianne Bryant, with their gracious hospitality, presented a wonderful opportunity for innovation, sharing, learning and friendship.
Making up the eight participating groups, were over 70 ringers from
First Baptist Church of Selma Raisin' Joy Bells
First Congregational Church Rhapsody Ringers
First Presbyterian Church Handbell Choir
Lutheran Church of Prayer LCoP Bell Choir
Sequoia Bronze
St. John's Lutheran Church Bells of Praise
The Bells of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church - Tehachapi
The Three Orphans
directors from: Plymouth Congregational Church Paso Robles, 
Trinity Lutheran Church Paso Robles, and
First United Methodist Church Porterville
Clinician, Nancy Jessup, skillfully led us through five pieces, working toward our final concert that evening.
Workshops taught by Nancy Jessup, Betty Price, Mel Tully, Kathie Mackie, and Cindy Ramming covered rhythm, handchimes, sight-reading, musicality & problem-solving, and ringing skills.

Chime soloist, Betty Price, shared her talent, passion, and creativity for handchimes.

Flutist, Sue Dockweiler, and guitarist, Cindy Ramming, added their talents during the concert.

Five choirs presented beautiful solo pieces.

And I was introduced to a "new" percussion instrument: "Hammer and Spike". Patrick Ogilvie, director at St. John's, had this great idea to add a dramatic embellishment to Crucifixion (arr. Jeffery A. Hall). At certain strategic downbeats near the end of the piece, the sound of metal striking metal, augmented by very sound-resonating walls, sent a startling and piercing chill throughout the sanctuary. Who knew the hardware store could be so resourceful? I love this thinking-outside-the-box!

It's not too late but there aren't many days left to get in on the Spring Rings in San Luis Obispo (April 6) and Temecula (April 19/20).  Don't delay! Visit the Central Cal and Southern Cal web pages for details.


Summer Seminar with Kimberlee Strepka!

Mark your calendar NOW!

On August 10, 2013, SoCal and LA Metro regions will be hosting a summer seminar with Kimberlee Strepka!

Regional Events 2013-2014

As you know, our regional events for 2013-2014 are already taking shape. It is my strong desire to have all the event information available to you before the end of June so you can include these opportunities in your time and budget planning for next year. 

  • Fall Ringers Workshop:  October 5, 2013 at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena
  • Youth Handbell Festival:  November 2, 2013 at Los Altos United Methodist Church in Long Beach (tentative)
  • February "Focus" Workshop:  Early February, 2014 at (TBD)*
  • Spring Ring:  Early March, 2014 at (TBD)*

*Please contact me if you would like to host either of these events.  lametro.area12@handbellmusicians.org.


"Many Hands Make Light Work"

It's wonderful to be able to offer so many chances for regional ringers to gather, learn a little more about our instrument, share our common love of handbell music, and enjoy each other's company.  There are already many people who regularly pitch in to make it all happen, and their efforts are greatly appreciated. However, we could still use some more help with mailings and other small tasks. Please contact me if you think you might be able to lend a hand.


New Opportunities

New opportunities for ringers are springing up in the LA Metro area.  Visit the LA Metro web page, and scroll down to the find the Ringers Wanted posts for more information.


Concert Info

Please send me your Spring and Summer Concert info as soon as you have it so I can help you spread the word. I do get many requests from people looking for handbell performances throughout the year. I would love to point them in your direction!


Ring on!
