After a successful return to live concerts last year, Three Rivers Ringers is looking forward to a great 2022-2023 season! TRR holds open auditions for all positions every two years, which most recently occurred in 2021. However, during “off” years we do hold informal auditions for ringers who want to join TRR to play more advanced music with a great team of ringers. We are looking to add a couple more ringers – now is the time to give it a try!
Three Rivers Ringers rehearses at Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church and performs on a variety of handbell instruments, including 7 octaves of Schulmerich handbells, 6 octaves of Schulmerich & Malmark handchimes and 2 octaves of Schulmerich Silver Melody Bells. Rehearsals are held on Sunday evenings from 6:00-9:00 pm. Three Rivers Ringers repertoire covers a wide range of musical styles and genres, including original compositions written for the ensemble. The budget for the Three Rivers Ringers is primarily supported through financial contributions from loyal supporters, the Board of Directors, and the Ringers themselves. Ringers selected for the ensemble are asked to make a suggested contribution towards the budget for the season. Auditionees must confirm availability for all concert “hold” dates for the coming year. Please note that Three Rivers Ringers only accepts musicians age 18 or older. All ringers must be up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations.
Whether you have already rung with an advanced ensemble or not, we’re interested in hearing from you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, or for more information.
