Bells on Temple Square

About the Bells on Temple Square

The Bells on Temple Square, a hand-bell choir of 28 musicians, enhances the concerts and recordings of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and performs two hand-bell concerts in the Tabernacle each year.

After years of borrowing hand-bells to provide the distinctive complement to its music, in 2005 the Choir organized an official hand-bell choir after receiving a donation of a 7-octave set of English hand-bells, a 6½-octave set of hand-bells, and two 6-octave sets of hand chimes.

LeAnna Willmore conducts the hand-bell choir and is assisted by associate conductor, Larry Smith.
