Pop go the Sailors “Stays Home” Audition Results

Congratulations to the following virtual acts that were chosen among 43 audition videos that were sent in and then scored by the staff of the MSHS Choir Department. Scoring was based upon the same criteria that we use to judge the Pop Go the Sailors when we have the auditions “live.” 

Thanks to all that took the time to audition and it was wonderful to see you all again, even if virtually. I also want to thank choir senior Timmy Schneider for pushing to make this production a reality and for mixing the sound for many of the acts, to choir senior Connor Fritz who, beginning today, will edit the videos and create a professional looking production, to our choir staff judging panel-Molly Lawton, JaiLynn Petrie and Cindy Twining for their time and expertise and to Michelle Newman who right now is creating poster art so we can still have a sign on the choir room wall for this show! 

This production will conclude with our traditional Senior “Walk-Off” complete with a Mr. Lawton speech and all of your lovely senior pictures and the reading of all choir seniors names, backed by the MSHS Alma Mater. 

I’m also very excited to announce we will again be teaming up with Andy O’Reilly and his team at MuskegonChannel.com & our local cable channel 96 to premier this virtual production. A huge shout out to them for their continual support not only of our choir but to the entire Muskegon Community! Our goal right now is to have video editing complete no later than June 1st and we will announce soon, via all types of social media, the date and time that the show will go “live” on the airways! Stay tuned.
