Singing into summer

Scat That
Andrew Collaku

Bebop. Samba. Acapella. Scat That covers all subgenres of jazz, the co-curricular club’s specialty. This spring, Scat That will showcase their many vocal pieces for an annual end-of-year concert on May 24.

The Scat That concert is a great way to wrap up the year, showing off the talent of the singers and the accompanying jazz-combo, senior Scat That singer Colin Fox said. The group will perform their repertoire of the year, featuring solos from both vocalists and the jazz combo, Fox said.

Additionally, the group will perform Latin jazz pieces, a new addition to this year’s concert, Daniel Gregerman, Scat That Director, said. Another piece they will perform is “Push”, a groovy jazz number that was featured in the 2024 V-Show.

Furthermore, the group is making this year’s concert entirely their own, Gregerman said.

“We’re doing something unique this year, [by] taking the 11 members of the ensemble and splitting them into two groups,” Gregerman explained. “Each of those groups is doing an acapella jazz piece that they have self directed [and] self learned.”

For seniors, the concert is a chance to appreciate their choir experiences, senior Scat That singer Joshua Zingerman said.

“I have only been in Scat That for [one] year but I have seen [them] perform throughout my choir [experience] at [South],” Zingerman said. “Seeing Scat That on stage as a sophomore, and now being in it as a senior, is very rewarding.”

With Scat That’s unique discography, the concert is an opportunity for a joyful closure with the group, and his years of choir, Fox reflected.

“[Scat That] was one of the main reasons I joined choir,” Fox said. “It’s this full circle moment. One of the last things I’m going to be doing [in choir] is closing with Scat That.”
