Why is the concert cancelled?

How do I get more information about Covid-19?

Please check with the Whatcom County Health Department for up to date information.

How do I watch the recording?

Since we aren’t able to perform for you live, we will be making a virtual concert available on our Watch and Listen page under the Events tab. This performance will feature:

  • An interview and solo performance with our Guest Artist Chee-Yun on violin
  • A special performance from musicians of the BSO
  • A message from Yaniv
  • The unveiling of our 45th Anniversary Season

The recording will be available on our website on Sunday, May 31st starting at 3pm. For questions about how to watch online, please email info@bellinghamsymphony.org or call our office at 360-756-6752. It is our hope that during this time we can reach our community to uplift each other - from our homes, to yours.

What happens to my tickets?

Even though we can’t make music together at the concert, you can help to keep the music going! Cancelling a concert has significant financial ramifications for the BSO. Instead of a refund, please consider donating your ticket back to the Symphony.

If you choose to donate, the Symphony will receive your gift and send you a donation receipt, with our deepest gratitude.
