Bellingham, WA – April 14, 2011 Jeremy Berry, noted young local viola phenomenon is returning to Bellingham in May to perform a recital. Admission is free, although a ten dollar donation is requested from adults. The proceeds will go to benefit the Bellingham Festival of Music.

The event takes place at 7:00 PM on May 7, 2011 at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, located at 2600 Lakeway Drive in Bellingham.

Berry, the son of Dr. Don and Karen Berry, is a graduate of Sehome High School and the Juilliard School in New York. He is currently a student at Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles. His piano accompanist will be Pauline Yang, a graduate student at USC who debuted as a soloist at Carnegie Hall when she was eleven years old.

Now in its 18th season, the Festival has become one of the premier summer classical music events in the northwest and has been the recipient of two substantial consecutive grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, joining such august organizations as the Seattle Symphony and Pacific Northwest Ballet as one of the few Washington performing arts organizations to gain such support.
