Whatcom Chorale, a 100-member community-based choir based in Bellingham, Washington, draws proficient singers from Whatcom, Skagit, and King counties.
We are dedicated to presenting choral concerts of the highest quality and to sharing
the joy of singing with our community.

Welcome to our 2017/2018 Season!

Momentum is our theme this season, and we are very grateful for artist (and Whatcom Chorale alto) Susan Bennerstrom’s captivating paintings, which will lead us deeper into each concert.
