The bus was loaded* with everyone on board excited & ready to get this show on the road!  Today’s drive across Northern Nevada in route to Sparks was one of the longest bus days of this journey, giving everyone a good opportunity to settle into their seat area – a place to call home – for the next two weeks. 

You would have never known that The Wesley Bell Ringer performance in Sparks Nevada was the first of this tour.! The choir did an exceptional job & received many praises from their audience.  Now if we could just to get them to SMILE!!

The Wesley Bell Ringers had a fantastic audience for stop #1 in Sparks.  We had friends, family, and a couple awesome Alumni Bell Ringers cheering the choir on: 

Jon & Tia Middelstadt, Alumni Wesley Bell Ringers & relatives of Emma Allison & Ella Middelstadt , pictured with Founder, Ed Duncan were great hosts tonight!

Thank you to Greg, Taryn, and Parker Wright - Family of Holden - for driving down from Tahoe to watch Holden & choir & for taking Zooey home with you!

Greta & Jim Coon with mom Sharron also traveled down from Tahoe to support Holden.  You guys are the best! 

Each day on tour you will get the opportunity to learn a bit more about each ringer & why this choir is so special!  Enjoy!

Get to know your Wesley Bell Ringers…
