Swing Cats are the JV show choir at Millard West High School in Omaha, NE. Comprised of 47 singer/dancers in grades 9-12, the ensemble rehearses twice a week after school. They are accompanied by their 19-member student band, the Snazz Cats. This years’ members are involved with honors & AP classes, theatre, marching band, football, swimming, softball, among others.  Their 2022 show explores the emotion of shame – we can let it control and define us, or we can use it to better ourselves and move forward. Their set includes:

“Winter Winds” by Mumford & Sons (feat. soloists Mars Zekpa and Titus Willems)

“Shame on Me” by Avicii (feat. soloists Caleb Houser, Penelope Larson, and Peyton Bishop)

“You and I” by Lady Gaga (feat. soloists Carlee Groff, Zoe Dykes, Ryley Ford, and Spencer Ford)

“Stupid Love” by Lady Gaga

“Shame” by The Strike (feat. soloists Raena Valdez)

Proudly representing Millard West High School, directed and arranged by Drew Firkins, choreography by Braxton Carr, Stephen Todd, and Anne Chapman, please welcome to the stage, Swing Cats!
