Using a system of adaptive music notation developed by the group’s original director, Letha McGrew, the bell choir began performing in and around Abilene, making audiences aware of the potential of students with special needs.    Comprised of students from both Abilene High School and Cooper high School, the bell choir has been under the direction of Cathy Taylor since 1997. Over the years, the group has performed hundreds of concerts in the Abilene area for schools, retirement centers, hospitals, churches, civic groups and community events. This aprticular performance was at a meeting of the Greater Kiwanis of Abilene.
