beautiful, inspiring, exciting choral music to the Greater Eastside and Puget Sound region.

Update on our 2020-2021 season!

Dear friends,
Over a year has gone by since we stopped live performances, cancelling our March 2020 concert “Finding Home,” and then of course the rest of our season. The Chorus has so far managed to weather the pandemic and associated complications, and we are incredibly grateful for the generous support and enthusiasm of our community during this time. We hope that our nearly monthly offerings of “virtual choir recordings” have been entertaining! However, the end of this season has met with some unforeseen challenges that have required us to make a few changes to our upcoming schedule (see “Enjoy our Virtual Performances” below).
We’re also continuing to learn and grow as an organization. We invited Dr. Maria Guinand to speak with us about “Latin American Performance Practice” in February (and barely dipped a toe into the immense richness and variety in Latin American culture)! We have two more guest speakers scheduled in April and May: first, Dr. Kari Ragan (“Vocal Resonance/Acoustics of Performance Practice”) and then Dr. Rollo Dilworth (“Spiritual Performance Practice”). Both of these speakers are fantastic and we can’t wait to host them!
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or thoughts, either via email or on our Facebook page. We’d love to hear from you!
~ Kris Bryan, Co-President, Bellevue Chamber Chorus Board of Directors
