Conductor David Amado’s unique way of ringing in holidays: He parked giant bells in garage

The nineteen Bells of Remembrance, created to honor Father Mychal Judge, the Franciscan friar and FDNY chaplain killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, are getting new homes. The Franciscan Center in Wilmington are giving the bells away to symphonies and fire companies and other good homes. Four of the bells will go to Sandy Hook, CT, in honor of those killed in the 2012 school shooting there.

Some of the bells are currently in the garage of conductor David Amado, report Betsy Price and Suchat Pederson of the Delaware News Journal.
