SWING CATS Prep Mixed Choir

About

The Millard West Swing Cats includes 58 talented musicians ranging from Freshmen to Seniors. SCATS members aim for excellence both on and off the stage. Swing Cats are extremely involved with their academics and numerous other activities outside of show choir.  They are enrolled in many Honors and AP courses, maintain exemplary grades, and are wonderful role models in the Millard West community.

Special thanks to their wonderful crew, roadies, spectacular show band, and amazing parents who volunteer countless hours of their time to help, including the "Dad Crew," "Backstage Moms," and "Costume Moms."

This year’s show focuses on all the different influences, the rhythms and beats, that we can feel as we live our lives.  These beats can come from society, loved ones, and from within.  Our show begins with “The Sound of the Drum” (Armin van Buuren) and “Thumbs” (Sebrina Carpenter) and continues with “Drumming Song” (Florence + the Machine) and “76 Trombones” (Meredith Wilson). Helping us look and listen to ourselves, our ballad is “Try It On My Own” (Whitney Houston).  Once we find value in our own rhythm, our own beat, we jump into the “The Walker” (Fitz & The Tantrums) and celebrate!

Arranged by Drew Firkins and choreographed by Anne Chapman and Braxton Carr, Swing Cats cannot wait to share with you the beat that they all march to!
