Thirteen conducting participants will be chosen and assigned one piece to learn and conduct under Dr. William Payn's tutelage. Conducting participants and ringer-observers will form the choir that each conductor will lead. The event concludes with a final showcase concert where each conducting student will present their piece for an audience. An application is required to be considered as a conducting participant, including a recent (within the last 12 months) video of the candidate conducting, and information about the candidate's music education and handbell experience. Conducting applications are due by March16, 2023

If you are not quite ready to step to the podium, you have the opportunity to participate as a ringer-observer, where you will ring for the student conductors and watch Dr. Payn work first-hand. Ringer-observers do not need to submit an application - simply proceed to registration. Ringer-observer registration closes June 1, 2023.
