Congratulations to Kristina Snyder, winner of the November wine drawing! She will receive a fine bottle of wine from Seifert & Jones Wine Merchant in Bellingham. This monthly drawing is part of the Festival’s 25th Silver Anniversary celebration, and Krissy’s name was selected at random from the Festival’s newsletter email distribution list of 1700 readers and supporters. Sign up for the newsletter and you, too, may be a lucky winner. Check out our website for more information on Krissy, who we think is the perfect winner.

Krissy says “Music is my life!” A violinist, she is a public school orchestra teacher in the Ferndale School District where she has taught for 15 years. She’s also been a violinist with the Whatcom Symphony Orchestra for 20 years, and teaches private violin lessons. In addition, she has taught and conducted orchestras at various music camps, and for a local youth symphony. “I can’t remember how long I’ve been attending BFM concerts,” she says, “but I think it’s been at least over 10 years. Of course, the string soloists are always my favorite, and I am glad to see the Calidore String Quartet representing strings with their residency. More strings, always!! I know I’m biased, but they are the best.”

A lucky winner from our e-newsletter list will be announced on the Bellingham Festival of Music website on the 25th of each month to receive a fine bottle of wine from Seifert and Jones Wine Merchants. Monthly drawing will occur through July 2017.

Rules: Winners’ names will be randomly drawn. The winner has to be at least 21 years of age and a subscriber to the newsletter. The winner will be contacted by phone or by mail. With permission, the winner’s name will be published in the newsletter, Facebook, and other social media. The winner must be able to pick up their wine from Seifert & Jones (or make shipping arrangements with Seifert and Jones) within two weeks of being notified that they have won.
