Mount Mercy's Music Program Shines Once Again

   Mount Mercy Academy’s Music Department recently travelled to California to compete in the World Strides Heritage Music Festival in Hollywood.  The school sent members of the Pure Magic Show Choir, the Magic Belles Hand Bell Choir and the Women’s Choir. The groups were judged and scored by three raters and all three groups were awarded Gold Medal designation.

All three groups are directed by Fred Kirisits, Mount Mercy’s long time director.  Justine Kish- Podsiadlo, a 2005 graduate is the choreographer for Pure Magic.


"Attending Mount Mercy Academy is one of the best decisions I could have made. Since day one they have challenged me academically, to strive and succeed. For the past two years at Mount Mercy, I received so much help from all the teachers. They are always open to help me with any questions I have. My teachers have even taken time whenever they can to help me to do well with upcoming tests and quizzes. With their help I have been on both honor rolls, and have been a scholar athlete."
