BUILDING COMMUNITY       


We welcome retired and working professional musicians as well as talented amateur musicians of all ages!

Admission to all BCO concerts is free, thanks to generous grants from Seattle’s Neighborhood Matching Fund, Bellevue’s “Special Projects” fund, 4Culture, and the Latino Community Fund.

Conductor Paula Nava Madrigal and Concertmaster Teo Benson are experienced, professional musicians and teaching artists affiliated with Young Strings Project Outreach, a  non-profit organization that has been providing classical music education and experiences, without charge, to under-served youth in the Seattle area since 2006.
