Portrait of Choirmistress Wendy Bloom

Wendy Bloom

Wendy Bloom brings with her a background rich with experience in choral music – including serving as a choir director and conducting professor at Concordia University, preparing the Flint Symphonic Choir for performances with the orchestra, and many years as a high school and church choir director in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Since arriving in Bellingham in 2016, she has begun serving as artistic director of Vox Pacifica, a choir for sopranos and altos. She has charted them on an impressive musical journey that is culminating with its selection to perform at the 2024 ACDA regional conference.

Ms. Bloom has also had a solo career as a mezzo soprano, singing many oratorios, symphonic concerts, and recitals. She has been a much sought-after voice instructor throughout her career.

As a professional chorister, Ms. Bloom has been a regular singer with Audivi, Sounding Light, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale and Conspirare. In her new home in Bellingham, WA, close to her two daughters, she is pleased to join the staff of the Bellingham Music Festival as Choirmistress.
