All ages from High School on up are welcome to sing with this choir, which is made up of professional and volunteer singers, and student scholars.

Mallory EpiscoBells Choir
The Mallory EpiscoBells Handbell Choir consists of a team of 11-15 ringers. Under the direction of Tim Root, they play for church services and concerts in our community.
