The Bellingham Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to be joined by pianist Jessica Choe and flautist Demarre McGill on May 9. “Jessica is an audience favorite, and there’s good reason for that,” says Music Director Yaniv Atttar. “She’s an amazing musician, and her warmth and delightfully engaging style are a perfect fit for our Mother’s Day concert.”
She is joined by Demmar McGill, Seattle Symphony’s principal flute. Demarre is the brother of Anthony McGill, whom the BSO featured earlier in their season. “The McGill brothers personify not only musical excellence, but powerful voices for social justice, and we support their words and notes in both arenas,” says Gail Ridenour, Executive Director.
The Bellingham Symphony Orchestra is proud to be at the forefront of virtual concerts by presenting their online season, Second Sundays: At Home with the BSO. Each concert features a soloist or two, an interview with the them, and a special performance featuring musicians from the BSO.
Concerts are available free on concert day through the BSO website, City of Bellingham’s BTV, and KMRE 102.3 FM. After concert day, they move to a paid subscription model. Subscriptions can be purchased for an individual concert or for the entire season. Concerts a/o the entire season can also be purchased for viewing around the world through the BSO’s Vimeo channel.The BSO is a proud partner in the Whatcom Arts Project.
