On December 20, 2011, the Mercy Center Auditorium was full of the sights and sounds of the holidays. The Annual Mount Mercy Academy Christmas Concert was held in conjunction with a stunning Art Show featuring Mercy student artists, to showcase MMA's talent.

The Freshmen Chorus performed three lovely songs including "Just Like Me" from 40 Years - A Charlie Brown Christmas. Our guest performers from the Debbie Bello Voice Studio featured singers from all grade levels. Their final song was a passionate "Seasons of Love" from the hit musical Rent. The MMA Women's Choir took the stage in a Christmas Processional singing "Gaudete!" and ended with the classic carole "Do You Hear What I Hear."

MMA's award-winning bell choir "Magic Belles" mesmerized the audience with their traditional caroles and their unique sound. The amazing talent and pure intensity of the musicians make this performance a crowd favorite.

Finally, the Pure Magic Show Choir lit up the stage with their dancing, singing and charm. Desiree Desiderio's solo of "When Christmas Comes to Town" was special and peaceful."Deck the Rooftop" from Glee was a fun mash-up featuring Emma English and Midge Bishop.

The Mount Mercy Academy Christmas Concert was directed by Mr. Fred Kirisits, Director of Music.Congratulations to all the performers for a fantastic show!
