Bellingham High School Choral Music Program (2018 and before) - New Site:


I am so PROUD to work with each of our students and parents. Without your hard work and dedication to becoming the best you can be, we would not be able to share our love and enjoyment of the wonderful world of Choral/Vocal Music in Bellingham and the world. Every time we meet, we further the goal of not just becoming a community of good singers, but we develop the "life skills" to become better people.

I feel very privileged to share this vision with each of you!  Welcome to my world as a music teacher in the Bellingham School District.  My current assignment is Vocal Music and Guitar 1 at Bellingham High School and Early Morning Choir at Kulshan and Whatcom Middle Schools.

BHS Showstoppers are preparing for another exciting performing season this year.  Mixed and Concert Choir are working on a variety of interesting music and Concert Choir is especially looking forward to traveling to Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR this spring.

Finding Out More Information and Getting Connected:

Stay connected with ALL of my Choral Groups through FB.

Join our Facebook groups if you are a member of the following groups:
Kulshan and Whatcom Middle School Choirs

Students have found Facebook to be the best way to communicate quickly so make sure you are 'friended' by a High School Vocal Music Student and added to the corresponding Facebook group for your group. If you are a friend or fan, like the Showstopper page to stay in touch.  Middle School Parents and Students can request to join the Middle School Choir page.

General Information should be found on this web site. Please look below for contact information for Linda Short, Vocal Music Director, Bellingham High School. 

Middle School Students and Parents: Contact me using my email first and then my BHS phone extension second. NEVER leave a message on the phones at Kulshan or Whatcom MS, because I NEVER have time to check my phone for messages there. 

Students should
 be signing up for all the different activities available to them. Almost all activities are open to all students so I encourage everyone to be brave and go for everything.  The more experience you get, the stronger singer you will be.

If you know of any new students coming into the BHS Choral Music Program, please have them send their email and phone numbers to Mrs. Short so we can keep our contact list current for students and parents.

Remember if you have any questions at this point, please email Vocal Music Director Linda Short at: or as a second choice leave a message at:  (360) 676-6470 ex. 7186
