Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to bring my own bells? Do I have to bring my whole ensemble? Is transportation to and from the concert venues included? Do Global Bronze Production Events use Chimes? Do I need to learn the music/repertoire in advance? Which bell brands are accepted? Do we need to bring tables and pads or any additional equipment? What is the concert attire?

It's best if you bring your own bells but depending on the location there are bells available for rent.  Contact us for rental opportunities at your performance event

No. You can register either individually or as a group:

A "group" is defined as a complete ensemble of 8 or more ringers from the same organization.

Transportation will be provided for the majority of residencies, but not all—please check for event-specific travel guidelines.  For those who stay at our host lodging all of your transportation is provided at no additional charge. If you choose to stay in your own accomodations, you can purchase transportation for an additional charge.

Generally we will only use handbells during our performance events.  If we utilize chimes, it will be advertised clearly in the registration information.
