In-Person Portion of National Seminar Cancelled Due to Resurgence of COVID-19 Cases

Due to last week’s resurgence of COVID-19 cases throughout Florida, Handbell Musicians of America has cancelled all onsite activities for the annual National Seminar previously scheduled for Orlando. The safety of Seminar participants is – and always has been – the organization’s top priority. So, while event organizers, volunteers, faculty, and staff would love to see everyone in person, that is simply not a safe option. 

HMA is still holding its FIRST-EVER Virtual National Seminar on July 16-19, 2020. It will be a new and different experience, but certainly a fun and educational one that puts no one at risk. This robust socially-distanced seminar includes all the classes you expect from HMA events plus new offerings like: 

  • Incorporating 12-bell music and other small-ensemble options
  • Twenty virtual HIC booths with options to meet live with company representatives
  • Keeping up your skills at home, without bells
  • Planning for a safe return to in-person ringing
  • Creating your own virtual ensemble

Beyond this engaging and informative curriculum, the virtual seminar also includes online game nights and nightly concerts, to help participants socialize with other musicians from around the world.

Even though the in-person National Seminar is cancelled, there is still so much value being shared.
