Sharon Guilliams began ringing handbells at Red Hill Lutheran Church in the early 1980’s and was a part of the 1988 Marching Handbell Choir that led off the Rose Parade.  She began directing in 1993 when a choir director asked her to start a children’s choir, and currently leads two bell choirs associated with the South County Community Handbell Choirs, one chime choir and rings at Red Hill Lutheran Church.  She is also a handbell soloist. While an engineer by degree and vocation, bells are Sharon’s passion.  Sharon is known for her enthusiasm and a desire to incorporate bells into the worship service in creative ways.  She has resurrected multiple bell choirs in cities where she has worked and enjoys working with children and adults. Her other passion is riding with her husband on their tandem bicycle.

Contact Sharon for more information about handbells in the Los Angeles Metro area.
