Meet Our Director
John Johnston is the director of Bells of Lake Norman. He helped found this group, and has been directing it since its beginning. John is 56 years old and has been playing hand bells since Junior High.
John has had a dream to start a community hand bell choir in the Lake Norman area for quite some time. He with the help of Dawn Linebarrier founded the group in 2014. He wanted a group that could play sacred and secular pieces. The group was to be a place where serious ringers could come to ring and have fun.
