Bellingham Symphony Orchestra Returns to Live Performance for 21-22 Season

The Bellingham Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce their return to Mount Baker Theatre for their 46th season. "We are thrilled to return to live performances, " says Music Director Yaniv Attar. "We have a wonderful season of incredible soloists who will be joining our BSO musicians on stage."

There will be some changes, however. "As we return to live performances, the safety of our musicians, staff, and audience is most important," says Executive Director Gail Ridenour. 

"We will be having two performances of each program, with the theatre at half-capacity for more distanced seating, which means that tickets can only be purchased in even numbers," adds Ridenour. "All attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination for entry to the theatre, and to wear masks for the duration of the performance." 

Other changes include slightly shorter concerts with no intermission, and on-line programs, to reduce the amount of materials handled by volunteers and attendees. 

The opening concerts on September 25 & 26 will feature new Concertmaster Dawn Posey on Ralph Vaughan Williams' "The Lark Ascending." The performance will be accompanied by visual graphics provided by graphic designer Audrey Negro, and introduced by local theatre educator and performer Shu-Ling Zhao. 

Tickets for the first three concerts of the season will be on sale to the public on August 30. For more details on the BSO's 46th season and for the latest concert and Health & Safety protocols, visit the BSO website.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
