"Anchored in the classics, focused on the future."

Welcome to our 2018/2019 Season!

Whatcom Chorale is a 90 voice mixed community chorus.  


Join us for the premiere of Ordinary Prayers a song cycle by Bellingham's own Scott Henderson. Written to balance Mozart's Coronation Mass, it will be a delight!

Scott Henderson studied at the Manhattan School of Music and earned a degree in composition at Indiana University in 1978. He served as resident composer with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, writing shows for Beatrice Arthur, and Eileen Brennan, as well as arrangements for Elizabeth Taylor, Joanna Gleason, and others. His published works include several dozen choral pieces. Since moving to Bellingham, his recent orchestral and choral works have been premiered by the Whatcom Symphony, Whatcom Chorale and Bellingham Children’s Choir. A fan of musicals and cabaret shows, he has musical directed A Broadway Cabaret, A Swell Party with Cole Porter, Broadway Takes on Politics, Bellingham Burlesque of 1927 and Hark! The Herald Headlines Sing! for the Bellingham Music Club. He is a proud tenor in the Whatcom Chorale and honored to be composing for the chorale once again.
