Chime & Bell Loan Program
BCGEHR owns a 3-octave set of Malmark Choirchimes, a 4-octave set of Schulmerich Melody Chimes, and a 4.5-octave set of Schulmerich handbells, all of which are available through its Chime & Bell Loan Program for its members. Loan periods will be four months and will run February–May or September–December.
Applications will be processed in the order they are received. The applicant may apply for an additional loan period at the end of the initial period if there is no other applicant waiting for the applicable instruments.
The applicant must provide proof of insurance based on the replacement value of the chimes or bells and their cases, either under the umbrella of the institution in which they will be used, or privately.
Details of the program, and the responsibilities of the loan applicant and the Guild, are outlined on each form — please read it carefully. Download and print the form, complete and sign it, and scan or send it to the address indicated on the form.
