WEST IN THE GROOVE Varsity Mixed Choir

West in the Groove 2019

About

West in the Groove (WIG) is comprised of 58 performers, ranging from sophomores to seniors, who take great pride in their musicianship, showmanship, and commitment. Along with show choir, WIG members balance a multitude of extra-curricular activities and Honors/AP courses at Millard West.  They strive to be exemplary leaders in their school, as well as in the show choir community.

Come and join WIG as they embark on a romantic getaway to Paris! Our show begins with an American girl boarding a WIG Air flight to the City of Light and immediately getting caught up in the Parisian crowd (“Paris Holds The Key To Your Heart”).  In the midst of the hustle and bustle, our American girl bumps into a French boy, falling in love at first sight.  Naturally, Paris is the perfect place for our couple to sight-see and fall deeper in love (“Tour de Paris” - Lost in Paris, C’est si bon, Mona Lisa, Les Poissons, Perfect, Can-can).  Our couple soon realizes that they do not speak the same language (“I Can’t Speak French”) but feel a connection (“Love Struck”).  Can love transcend this language barrier? For our couple, the answer is yes! Our ballad becomes a declaration of commitment and love as they choose to communicate beyond words (“La Vie En Rose” & “Say It Somehow”) and jump into a bright and shining future together (“Rewrite The Stars” & “Heaven”)!

Choreographed by Stephen Todd and arranged by Drew Firkins and Luke Furman, West in the Groove is ready to share this story of connection and love with you!

West in the Groove would like to thank all the parents, Groovehouse (show band) and roadies who spend countless hours helping with their show.
