2020 Bell Tree Composition Contest

by Barb Brocker

The bell tree ringers from ‘Into the Forest’ are sponsoring a composition contest for bell tree with handbell choir music.  Deadline is August 15.  Prize is $2000.   

The bell tree community is seeking music to help move bell trees from the periphery into the mainstream by seeing more bell trees playing with handbell choirs in concerts, church services, and other venues.  We are defining the mainstream as handbell choirs who play level 2+ to 3 music and have 3 to 5 octaves of bells and probably chimes.  We are seeking more music for this range.

For more detailed information about the contest, and to request an application, go to   2020 BT Composition Contest
