There will be two mini-ring concerts held during the festival (Friday, Saturday).  Each of these mini-ring concerts provides a wonderful opportunity for choirs and ensembles to share performances with the other ringers. There will be a brief rehearsal time scheduled for each mini-ring performer, ensemble or choir. The performance times are limited to 5 (five) minutes only so that we may maximize the number of groups that may play throughout the festival.

If you would like to participate in the Mini Ring concerts, please visit the Mini Ring Application Form page for information and an application form. Concert time is limited, so please get your application in as soon as possible to ensure you have a chance to ring! Participation in the Mini Ring concerts is based solely on the date we receive your completed application to perform until all performance slots are filled.
