Tonight was supposed to be MSO Spring Concert and the final concert for our seniors. Traditionally the seniors are recognized and awards are given. So tonight Mrs. DeRose, Mona Shores Orchestra Parent Association Board went on the road to present awards, present MSO 2020 yard signs, and have the seniors sign a violin that will hang in the high school orchestra room.
The parade of cars honked as they approached a seniors home and stopped to cheer on the seniors from an acceptable social distance as Mrs. DeRose recognized the class of 2020. Most of the seniors were home but we did leave surprises for each of them. It was a fun night seeing the seniors with smiles on their faces. As the fun continued we even added a few more cars with seniors and parents .
Congratulations to the Class of 2020 and best of luck on your next adventure.

Come on over after the Homecoming Parade for some good food and good music. Menu includes pulled pork sandwich or hot dog, coleslaw, chips, cookie, and beverage for $7 a plate.
Spooktacular photos from this years concert have been uploaded to our Flickr page. Unfortunately, for some unknown reason, most were very blurry and many were not clear enough to post. If you have any great pictures to share, please do so.

We would like to publicly thank everyone that made the Michigan Irish Music Festival an incredible weekend for the Fiddlers.
Thank you to the Michigan Irish Music Festival for again inviting the Fiddlers to perform at this incredible event. It’s an honor to be able to play at the same venue with such amazing musicians from around the world right here in Muskegon.
Thank you to parents, families, friends, and Mona Shores Alumni that came out to support the Fiddlers. Playing to a full, friendly house was a blast! All the weekly rehearsals have paid off.
Thank you to the very talented sound crew! It’s alway nice to perform when we have friendly and knowledgeable audio engineers!
Over the weekend we shared many more pictures and videos of the MIMF on our Instagram and Facebook pages – too many to re-post here. We also shared that The Founding (formerly Blarney Castle) will be our special guest at the 16th Annual Fiddle Festival. More Fiddle Fest information coming soon.
If you missed the Fiddlers this past weekend you can catch them this Friday, Sept 22, 2017, at the Mona Shores High School Homecoming Tailgate Party!
