The wait is over!  Shoreline Ringers are back.  Dunn’s Corners Community Church, Presbyterian in Westerly, RI will host the only local public concert of the Shoreline Ringers this season.  Come be a part of a special evening of music and fun.  We are raising money for our trip to Phoenix, AZ, where we will perform the opening concert for the Handbell Musicians of America National Seminar.

Recommended donation is $20 per person when you arrive at this fundraising event.  This June 27 fundraising concert will help the ringers make the 5,000 mile round trip.  Come with your checkbook prepared to have some fun in helping them make their way west.  You will have the opportunity to sponsor our travel through a particular state. If you would like to sponsor a state but can’t attend the concert, please email Shoreline at shorelineringers@gmail.com

The ringers will also auction a quartet to come play for your private event/gathering at your home during the holidays or you can send us to perform at a local care facility of your choice.  Shoreline will be the sound and talk of your celebration!

Shoreline Ringers and COVID-19

Shoreline Ringers has always sold our CDs exclusively at our concerts, but 2020 has brought many new things to all of us (including socially distanced ringing.)

If you were waiting for your chance to purchase a CD at a concert, and missed the opportunity because everything got cancelled, we have good news.  You can now purchase any of our CD’s online, even the ones that are not available for digital download.  We have set up an online store through Square.  Buy a CD (or several!) and we will mail them to you anywhere in the USA.  (Sorry, we aren’t prepared to ship internationally at this time.)

Shoreline Ringers stopped rehearsal from last fall until March 2021, and we are gearing up for our trip to Arizona to perform the opening concert of the Handbell Musicians of America National Seminar in July.
