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.


"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
