Heeding the call of John Behnke’s “The Bells Must Ring!”, 165 handbell musicians met in Kansas City for the 2022 Area 8 Festival Conference. The two days were filled with massed & divisional rehearsals, classes, concerts, and a silent auction.  The event was capped off on Saturday night by the closing concerts. Thanks to our clinicians, Dr. John Behnke and Alex Guebert, who received rave reviews from the attendees!
