Play it Forward

Begun by the Festival 10 years ago together with the BSO, The Play It Forward Chamber Residency is hoping to resume in the spring of 2022 after taking two years off because of Covid restrictions. In the month of March over the past eight years, the Festival has financed, housed, and transported an ensemble from the prestigious Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles, where they performed masterclasses, classroom outreach, and concerts throughout our Whatcom County middle and high schools. With the help of the county school districts and the BSO, this program will, hopefully, resume in 2023 for its 9th season.
