mBLOG Tell us a bit about how the Macy’s Christmas Tree came to fruition.
WW The Parade Team was challenged this year to celebrate the idea of “togetherness” by producing a festive performance just minutes before Santa’s arrival. What better way to bring this to life than by inviting Macy’s employees to audition for a larger-than-life chorus and then perform together on Thanksgiving as one big Macy’s family!
mBLOG It’s cool to think that they are Macy’s employees by day and performers by night. What was the audition process like?
WW We received close to 400 online audition videos from employees across the organization! Not only did applicants show off their singing talent, they also created testimonials that spoke to their love of singing in a choir, holiday music and the Parade. We can’t wait to get everyone here in NYC the week of Thanksgiving to rehearse together, see the city sights and share a very special musical experience together.
