The bell choir, conducted by LeAnna Wilmore, presents two concerts a year on Temple Square as well as performing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in concerts, broadcasts and special events. “To be celebrating our tenth anniversary is a great tribute to our musicians,” Wilmore says.
The 32-member bell choir will perform a variety of music ranging from classical to contemporary. The repertoire will include well-known pieces “Finlandia,” “Russian Sailors Dance,” “The Stars and Stripes Forever,” and “Good Vibrations.” Of special note will be the ensemble’s presentation of “Flight of the Bumblebee” which has wowed viewers on YouTube for months.
The evening will also feature organ performances by Temple Square organist Linda Margetts on the Ruffatti organ and soloists from the BYU-Idaho music department.
