Mundelein Sound Show Choir

Mundelein Sound

Director: Cory Thompson
Instrumental Director: Andy Sturgeon
Choreographers: Nancy Bocek and Ben Schrank

Mundelein Sound is the premier co-ed show choir at Mundelein High School! Although this group meets exclusively outside of the school day, all of these students are in a concert ensemble that meets during the day.  Most of them are also in either SoundFX or Lights, and are therefore rehearsing in and outside of the school day, fully committing themselves to show choir at MHS!  This year’s show has a theme of vision and growth.  We were lucky enough to again have MHS Alumni, Dominic Cappuccilli, arrange their beautiful ballad.

Mundelein Lights Show Choir

Mundelein Lights

Director: Stevee Bellas
Instrumental Director: Andy Sturgeon
Choreographers: Nancy Bocek, Ben Schrank


Lights is the premiere all-female show choir at Mundelein High School.  The women in Lights meet during the school day, in addition to many weekend clinics and performances.  Their show this year consists of songs revolving around the concepts of strength, growth, and love, with the songs “Born To Be Yourself,” “Chasing Twisters,” “Fly, Fly Away,” and “Coming to You/Go Gone.”

Mundelein Sound FX Show Choir

Mundelein SoundFX

Director: Cory Thompson
Instrumental Director: Andy Sturgeon
Choreographers: Nancy Bocek and Ben Schrank

SoundFX is the premiere all-male show choir at Mundelein High School. FX is in their 14th year of existence, and their success has grown as the years have gone by! The men in SoundFX meet daily during the school day, and all of them are also enrolled in a concert choir or a concert band.   This year, FX will be competing at the Prairie Premiere, in Mrs. Thompson’s hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Fort Atkinson Showcase, Naperville North’s Clash of the Sequins, and Totino-Grace Show Choir Spectacular in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Their show this has a “Love Doctor” theme, and includes the songs “Bad Medicine,” “Love Potion Number 9,” “Fix You,” arranged by MHS Alumni Dominic Cappuccilli, who is now attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, and “Doctor You!”
