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.

  • Bell Jubilee - Let's Get Back into the Swing of Ringing

    October 16, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
    Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 6020 Radford Ave, North Hollywood, CA 91606, USA

    Area 12’s LA Metro Region is proud to bring “Bell Jubilee – Let’s Get Back into the Swing of Ringing” to handbell enthusiasts in the LA Metro Region, as well as around the world via the virtual medium.  During this ½ day event, you will hone and refresh your ringing skills by learning a piece of music under the tutelage of Christian Guebert and members of some of LA Metro’s premiere handbell ensembles.  The premiere handbell ensemble ringers will actually be ringing alongside participants.  The format for the workshop is a typical rehearsal of a piece interspersed with “mini-moments of learning” taught by the members of the premiere handbell ensembles.  We will review proper technique as well as proper execution of articulations, all the while having fun doing what we love.
