Every year, the Festival sponsors a winter recital by a young musician from the area who is currently studying to be a professional musician in a nationally recognized music program. The concert typically takes place at the end of the holiday season just after New Year’s. It celebrates the talent and dedication of the featured young artists, their teachers, and the training they received in area education programs.
This year’s concert features cellist Maya Enstad, now a senior at Oberlin Conservatory. Raised in Bellingham, Maya currently studies with Amir Eldan at Oberlin. She won first place in the Bellingham Music Club’s Ethel Crook String Competition for two consecutive years in 2014 and 2015, and was awarded a fellowship position at the Marrowstone Music Festival in 2017 and at Bamfield (British Columbia) Music by the Sea in 2019.
