Friday, May 9, 2014
All are Welcome---Free to the Public
The Westminster Bell Choir and the Belles of Westminster, under the direction of Cathy Ferrand Bullock, will perform at the Logan Tabernacle at 7:00 pm on Friday, May 9. Admission is free. The concert will feature secular and sacred music for full bell choir, including favorites such as “Jesus Loves Me” and “For the Beauty of the Earth”; a handbell quartet; and organ/piano/bell pieces highlighting the talents of special guests Brandon Clayton and Elisabeth Evans.The bell choirs are interfaith groups sponsored by Logan’s First Presbyterian Church. The 20 ringers range from high school to retirement age, represent a number of local churches and wards, originally hail from all over the country, and have anywhere from a few months to a few decades of ringing experience.Thanks to the generous support of many in the community, the choirs have added a fifth octave of English handbells and a fifth octave of chimes since their appearance in the Tabernacle in December. The full range of bells and chimes will be used.The bell choirs rehearse August through May during which time they typically give several performances at churches, retirement apartment complexes, nursing homes, and other venues. They have participated in the American Festival Chorus’ Christmas concerts for several years. One of their most enjoyable activities has been their annual trip to the Utah State campus to flash mob various classes at the end of the Fall semester.
