Bonnie Goodliffe has performed with the Choir on the Tabernacle Organ for more than thirty years, making her the current dean of all five organists playing at the Tabernacle. I had been scoutmaster for her son Jay, an Eagle Scout with children of his own. She was most sympathetic and concerned, but said she was not a writer of songs and had no talent in that area.
Bonnie is currently one of five organists performing for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. She was most sympathetic when she said she was not a composer of songs (for others), but because I didn't have another resource to turn to soon my song writing days were over and discouragement set in. Had I persisted, as I should, who knows? I may have a dozen songs to my credit. That first song-which became my last-remains in the bottom of some drawer, probably lost. But occasionally I do hum or sing some of the lyrics.
MormonTabernacleChoir.Org had this to say about Bonnie Goodliffe:
Bonnie Goodliffe has an extensive background in organ performance, music theory and composition. She has served as a Tabernacle Organist for one-third of a century and in key positions with the American Guild of Organists.
As one of five Tabernacle organists, Sister Goodliffe performs with both the Tabernacle Choir and the Temple Square Chorale. She also joins with her fellow organists in presenting daily 30-minute organ recitals in the Tabernacle. In addition, Goodliffe teaches music theory in the three- month Choir training school conducted twice each year for new entrants to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and as in- service for current Choir members.
She has been a Tabernacle organist since 1979. She studied piano and organ at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Bonnie received both her bachelor's and master's degrees in music from Brigham Young University.

She has presented workshops at AGO conventions and has written several articles published in the AGO's official magazine, The American Organist.
She was a member of the executive committee responsible for the current edition of the hymnal for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. She is a published composer with credits including the hymn "We Meet Again as Sisters," a musical setting of "Take My Life and Let It Be" and an arrangement of "Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee."
Bonnie Goodliffe and her husband, Glade, a CPA and business consultant, are the parents of seven children.
