The North Carolina Baptist State Youth Handbell Festival offers outstanding training and playing opportunities for middle school and high school bell ringers. Music is chosen in varying difficulty levels suitable for worship. We encourage participation in the festival through inter-generational choirs.

Show off your choir! Reward your choir’s year of hard work and dedication by selecting a favorite piece from the year’s repertoire to share with other choirs at the festival during “Parade Time.” Parades are usually held Friday evening and Saturday morning. Seasonal selections, such as Christmas pieces, are welcomed and encouraged. We can be flexible to meet anyone’s schedule with rehearsal times and last minute changes of schedule. This part of the festival offers your choir the opportunity to ring in a low stress performance environment. For choirs who would like to participate in parades, please list your musical selection and indicate your individual choir rehearsal time preference on your registration form.
