Garrett Bond holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Theory & Composition from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota and recently achieved a Master of Music degree in Choral Conducting with a graduate teaching fellowship in Collaborative Piano from Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. Garrett has been ringing bells since 2016. He began ringing at St. Olaf when a friend did not want to audition for the ensemble alone, and he has discovered his own love for the instrument. He is an active composer, conductor, collaborator, and director within the Oregon community and abroad. Garrett has begun serving as President of the Bells of the Cascades Board for the 2021–2022 term and is honored by this opportunity to further his dedication and involvement with this ensemble.
