2017 Western PA Handbell Festival
Saturday, April 1, 2017
Robert Morris University
Moon Township, PA
The WPA Festival is a beginning-level event for handbell choirs (Level 1-2 music), co-sponsored by Three Rivers Ringers—Pittsburgh’s premier handbell ensemble—and the Robert Morris University Band Program. Members of Three Rivers Ringers will be teaching and performing at the festival as well as planning the event. We will once again be working with and assisted by the Robert Morris Band Program, under the direction of Elisabeth H. Charles. For the second year, due to positive feedback, the festival will return to Yorktown Hall at RMU. The ringing floor and classrooms are very close to each other in the same building, along with a lunch area and cafeteria.
