Bells of the Cascades

Passionate about innovative, advanced handbell ringing in the Portland area? We want your help!
 

Audition!

Calling all Bronze-level ringers! What do you do on Tuesday evenings? We are always looking for experienced and versatile ringers who would consider joining Bells of the Cascades. We are holding auditions on Tuesday, Aug. 30 in the Portland metro area for the 2022-23 season and beyond.

Interested? Fill out our audition application form. If you have any questions, you can write to membership@bellsofthecascades.org.
 

Join the board of directors

We’re always looking for new folks to help guide our 501(c)(3) nonprofit, whether you’re a director of a church or community ensemble, a ringer yourself, or simply a supporter of the musical arts.

While fundraising and budgeting is a big part of the board’s role, we’re also looking for people with experience in event organizing, communications, grantwriting, and strategic planning. No prior board experience necessary. Members of our board are not paid in money but in camaraderie, love for one another, and satisfaction in advancing the art of handbell music.

Interested? Send an email to president@bellsofthecascades.org and we’ll be in touch!
 

Volunteer as a substitute ringer

As we know you understand, a handbell ensemble is one instrument played by several people, and when one person has to miss a rehearsal the instrument simply isn’t complete!

We’re looking for ringers who have some experience playing intermediate or advanced-level handbell music and are willing to be on call (with advance notice) to step in when we need a substitute ringer for Tuesday evening rehearsals. This is also a great way to get to know the ensemble if you’d like to explore the possibility of auditioning in the future.

If you’d like to volunteer, please email director@bellsofthecascades.org and we’ll put you on the list!
