Board & Staff

The Bellingham Festival of Music Board of Directors is composed of dedicated volunteers who serve year round, to plan, prepare, produce, and present the Festival events and education enrichment activities. As Board Members they bring decades of expertise from their professional careers in finance, arts management, public relations, fund-raising, and grant writing, among other fields. They apply these skills in developing community connections and collaborations that support and enrich the lives of music lovers who visit or live in Bellingham & Whatcom County.
