Interfaith Coalition Music Festival

A cappella, Choral, Classical

Join us for an eclectic and uplifting program of spiritual music from diverse congregations and faith traditions throughout Whatcom County, ending with an exuberant grand finale involving all of the performers together with the audience. This free concert, a Bellingham tradition for more than a dozen years, showcases diverse choral and instrumental music and usually attracts a full house. Adding to the selections by choirs ranging in size from intimate to majestic, a special feature of this year’s festival will be the song “One Day,” an international plea for peace and current YouTube sensation. The solo verses in Arabic and Hebrew will be performed by Bellingham Beth Israel cantor, Andrea Shupack, and Khaled Zaki, a Seattle area American Muslim muezzin, creating a true interfaith spirit. Interfaith Coalition is a group of 50 churches, a synagogue, and other local partners working together to end family homelessness in Whatcom County. Free-will offering opportunity at door.
