Community, Collaboration and Inspiration

In accordance with their corporate goals and objectives, RiverBells sponsors workshops and clinics to help other handbell ensembles and individual ringers develop their skills and techniques. RiverBells has hosted well-received workshops featuring Valerie Stephenson and Tim Waugh, both nationally recognized handbell clinicians, conductors, and composers.

Many other regional and national groups provide inspiration to the RiverBells. We invite you to explore some of the music that we enjoy from our friends.
