Show Choir

Showcats | SophistiCats

The Nitro High School Show Choir program is made up of two vocal music ensembles, one mixed group of boys and girls titled The Showcats and a solely girls-based ensemble titled The SophistiCats. Auditions are held each spring for both groups with a week-long workshop followed by formal auditions. Students are required to be in the class during the active school day and receive a grade for their efforts. There are also several after-school practices held for both groups. During the winter months both ensembles travel to various competitions. The most important thing The Showcats and The SophistiCats provide is a chance to make lifelong friends, learn teamwork, strong work ethics, and a sense of belonging to something fantastic.
