The Bellingham Youth Chamber Players program provides chamber music opportunities to elementary through high school string, woodwind, and piano students. Students meet throughout the school year to work on chamber music and receive coaching from professionals. The chamber groups have several performance opportunities throughout the year and occasional opportunities to play in masterclasses. BYCP is run by Program Coordinators Nancy Heyer, Deborah Oksenberg, and Samantha Sinai.
Registration for next season will open in August. For more information, please email BYCP@bellinghamsymphony.org. BYCP music stands are provided by Quist Violins.
