Church Bells


"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands!" (Psalm 100:1)

Salem has been blessed to have an active handbell choir for many years.  Due to COVID-19, our bell choir is currently functioning as a quartet to provide additional music in worship during the pandemic. Our regular players are Karen Fisher (director), Carla Frisch, Robin Iannucci and Angela Spinner. Three players currently act as substitutes: Amy Krebs, Katy Stevens and Karen Sersen.


The Salem bell choir plays 8 bell music with each player having 2 bells. In order to be safe, practice has been held outside on Karen’s back porch, using individual music stands and social distancing. During the colder months, we will be inside to practice, but still socially distanced. The music has been very interesting to learn to play and requires new techniques.
