OUR MISSION STATEMENT: The primary mission
of the Hudson Valley Handbell. Festival Conference (HVHFC) is to promote
the art of handbell ringing by providing an opportunity for local and/or
visiting handbell choirs to perform in a massed, divisional, and solo
choir framework, and present a concert to the general public. To further
the art of handbell ringing, HVHFC may, at the discretion of the
governing body, also provide financial assistance to handbell choirs or
members of the Handbell Musicians of America who are in
serious documented need.

Quotes from previous year's participants:
"Really enjoyed the festival!!!
Our group all thought the conductor was fantastic and loved her
Thanks for a great festival!"
"Both my choirs had a great day. Some
of them made it to church today - not too many, but neither of them were
playing today - my kid's choir was!!
The choir that had never been before could not get over how great it
was, and the old hands said it was the best one yet!!
They were all full of praise for the conductor and the overall
organization of the whole day.
Thank you to the organizing committee for a good job well done."
