Linda Woods

Linda Woods has been LOUMC’s director of handbells since 1982. She says, “I have a degree in instrumental music, and it never occurred to me that I would use it for church music, let alone handbell music, which, by the way, I didn’t know existed. Our two adult handbell choirs, Lake Carillon and Vesper Bells, have become more than great bell choirs. They have become great friends to one another and, especially, to me. I am blessed to have a job in such a caring church full of talented musicians where I can pair my love of music with my love of people.”
