Auditions for Bells of the Bluffs

Want to become a member of Bells of the Bluffs? We are always looking for people to be a part of our group either as a member or substitute.

Bells of the Bluffs is a non profit community group. We expect members to commit to regular performances as well as periodic retreats and special meetings. We schedule with respect to members’ schedules.

Prospective members should be able to commit to regular Thursday rehearsals in Red Wing, MN. Rehearsals are held at First Lutheran Church, Red Wing from 5 PM to 7 PM.

For the 22-23 season, we will be celebrating 10 years. What this will look like is being worked on and will develop as we move forward to September. It will be a fun year.

Individual music skills evaluation, which will consist of rhythm exercises, a demonstration of a working knowledge of handbell techniques and notation, sight-reading of both exercises and repertoire, and performing two or more pre-assigned parts in standard handbell repertoire while playing along with a recording of the pieces. You will receive an advance copy of the music and some of the exercises at least a week prior to the audition.

Our handbells are in for refurbishing this summer so group auditions will not be scheduled. If you have a video of a group you played with to see you in a group setting, please send it to me or give me a link to watch it.

There are three sections to the application…each section needs to be filled out before going to the next. If it says sign into google you do not need to. E mail bellsofthebluffs@gmail.com if you have problems.
