The Concert Hall has been home to the Bellingham Festival of Music since 1993. Completed in 1973, the 640-seat venue was designed by acclaimed Pacific Northwest architect Henry Klein of Mount Vernon, Washington. The acoustical consultant for the Concert Hall was Christopher Jaffe, a pioneer in the field of acoustical design who during the course of his career consulted on over 250 performance halls including the Hollywood Bowl, Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Severance Hall in Cleveland, and the John F. Kennedy Center Concert Hall in Washington, D.C.

Bellingham Cruise Terminal

The domed atrium at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal is an idyllic location for a chamber music concert. It is situated on a pier in historic Fairhaven and surrounded by water on three sides. The terminal is the southern starting point for the Alaska Marine Highway System, the nation’s first marine Scenic highway.
