The GHS Swing Choir Concert had people taking to the dance floor as they performed several songs on May 18.

Glasgow's Swing Choir did not disappoint at their annual spring concert held May 18, at the Ridge Runners Club. The performance has become quite an attraction, with this year's concert drawing almost 400 people.

The performance featured the choir's take on several pop songs that spanned several generations and genres. The energy from the group had several in attendance leaving their seats and dancing as the troupe performed masterfully.

A lot of time goes into preparing for the gig. Swing Choir Director Luree Chappell began writing the show all the way back in January, and began teaching it to the choir in February. Chappell wrote the band and vocal arrangements for the show, leaving the guitar arrangements to be put together by Todd Archambeault and Ben Miller.

Chappell and the GHS Swing Choir would like to thank The Cottonwood Inn, Evangelical Church, Joe Rennick, Todd Archambeault and the GHS acting class in helping to make the event a success.
