Emanuel Ringers I is our most advance group typically high school ringers. We rehearse for two hours each week preparing for services, concerts and festivals. In December, our annual benefit concert, in April, the Riverside Festival and in the summer, area festivals and international symposia, we are able to share our music. The international symposium occurs every two years and are held all over the world, giving our young people the chance to experience other countries and cultures and share their common gift of music. While the ringers might not necessarily speak the same language, they learn that they can work together through music.
