Spotlight on Western

As the beginning of what we hope will be a continuing series BCMS is proud to provide our audiences with exposure to the great talent that the WWU music department is nurturing by including guest WWU student performers on our concerts.


sampleThe Bellingham Chamber Music Society was formed in 2013. The Society's goal is to present world-class chamber music, promote understanding and appreciation of classical music and to enhance the beauty of Bellingham through music.

The Society offers diverse programming, to include the standard repertoire of the great string and woodwind literature, works featuring piano as well as more contemporary fare. Works by well-known such as Beethoven, Debussy, Brahms, Piston, Arnold, Bach, Schubert, Mozart, and Reicha as well as soon-to-be-well-known composers remain part of our repertoire.

We are very pleased to announce that the Internal Revenue Service has granted the Bellingham Chamber Music Society 501(c)(3) status with retroactive effect to November 30, 2013. Contributions made to the Society after that date are tax deductible as allowed by law.
