The prestigious 28-member bell choir is a sight to be behold, with the musicians’ arms moving in fluid precision and exact timing. During the concert, the bells will be joined by other musicians.

"Winter Festival of Sound" will open with "Festa," an introductory processional musical setting, following by a selection of American folk hymns, including "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" and "Simple Gifts." The music will include such holiday favorites as "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "It Came upon the Midnight Clear" and "Jingle Bells." The program will conclude with "Bell Carol Fantasy." The evening will also include performances by Temple Square organists Bonnie Goodliffe and Linda Margetts and instrumental ensembles composed of members of the Orchestra at Temple Square.

The Bells on Temple Square was organized in 2005 under the auspices of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Salt Lake Tabernacle.

Free tickets are available beginning Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 10 a.m. with a limit of four per person. Tickets can be obtained online at www.lds.org/eventshref="http://www.lds.org/events">www.lds.org/events, over the phone at 801-570-0080 or from the Conference Center ticket office.
