Music teacher Rachel Erickson said the performers auditioned before the performance either at a scheduled audition date, or separately, if they could not attend the regular audition.
  • Katie Cloutier plays guitar and sings “The End” by Pearl Jam. Erickson said this year’s talent show was an opportunity for a number of community members to return to the stage and preform for an appreciative audience. The program also featured a surprise “recorder flash mob” of Ode to Joy.
