About the Bells at Temple Square

The all-volunteer handbell choir, led by conductor LeAnna Willmore and associate conductor Geoff Anderson, was formed in 2005 as part of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square organization. The choir plays on seven octaves of handbells and hand chimes.

The 32-member handbell choir’s performances include two yearly concerts, taking part often in the weekly “Music & the Spoken Word” broadcasts of the Tabernacle Choir and a major role in the choir’s annual Christmas concerts. The ensemble rehearses weekly. The rehearsals are currently not open to the public.
