Sophisti'Cats say farewell
Williamsport High School said farewell to its graduating Sophisti'Cats on May 31 at the WHS Salute to Seniors, Show Choir Show.
Opening the evening was the show-stopper, "Show People" from "Curtains." The choir delighted its audience with four Broadway medleys, including "The Jersey Boys," "Big River," "Mary Poppins, the Musical," and "Sweeney Todd."
The highlight of the evening, however, were the senior members. Throughout the show, the seniors were featured in special presentations. The show opened with the senior members singing "One Day More" from "Les Miserables." Each graduating Sophisti'Cat selected and performed a senior solo.
Marquis Clever sang "Jesus and Gravity," made popular by Dolly Parton. Dann Hayes presented "This is the Moment," from "Jekyll and Hyde." Kari Smith sang a Stevie Nicks classic, "Landslide."
The haunting Paul Simon classic, "Bridge Over Troubled Water," was next performed by Zac Burger.
After intermission, Brett Rowland shared the beautiful "Hallelujah," from the movie "Shrek." Senior soloist Julie Cook chose Billy Joel's "River Of Dreams" for her performance selection and Ed Schubel closed out the senior solos with a medley of standards including "Unforgettable," "A Time for Us" and "My Way."
The Sophisti'Cats also presented their graduation selections which included "In Whatever Time We Have." from "Children of Eden," "The Song of Purple Summer," from "Spring Awakenings," "My Wish" and "I Will Always Love You."
The evening brought parents and friends to tears with the annual "A Year to Remember" video presentation.
