Restoring the Bells of First Plymouth

Go behind-the-scenes during the restoration of the nearly one-hundred-year-old carillon bells of First Plymouth Church. The old bells were made in England with the largest one weighing almost 5000 pounds. For decades, carillonneur Kathie Johnson has climbed the tower to play the bells and shows us just what it takes to play beautiful music in “The Singing Tower.”
