The Bellingham Chamber Music Society was formed in 2013.
The Society's goal is to present world-class chamber music and performers to Bellingham audiences, to promote understanding
and appreciation of classical music and to enhance the beauty of Bellingham through music.
Society offers diverse programming, to include the standard
repertoire of the great string and woodwind literature, as well as
the wonderful works featuring piano, as well as harp and voice.
Works by well-known and soon-to-be-well-known composers, such as
Beethoven, Debussy, Brahms, Piston, Arnold, Bach, Schubert, Mozart,
and Reicha, to name few, will be performed.
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.
