Play it Forward

Begun by the Festival 11 years ago together with the BSO, The Play It Forward Chamber Residency is hoping to resume in the spring of 2023 after taking several years off because of Covid restrictions. In the month of March in previous years, the Festival has financed, housed, and transported an ensemble from the prestigious Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles to Whatcom County, where they performed masterclasses, classroom outreach, and concerts in ourĀ  middle and high schools. We look forward to welcoming the next young ensemble.
