Catalyst A Cappella at Northmont started from a small group of kids who wanted to sing. They had no teacher, no music, and no idea what to do. They pushed their teachers and administration to find a place where their talents could be heard and Northmont listened. They were our Catalyst. From their desire to perform we formed this group. Impulse After the sudden success of Catalyst, many other students decided they wanted to be a part of this new and exciting ensemble. We found a name to reflect their desire to push the A Cappella program to the next level. This group is designed to help prepare students for the rigorous performing schedule of Catalyst. Wired While Catalyst was gaining momentum, the students at the middle school wanted to join in on the fun. Wired is open to all 7th and 8th graders in band, orchestra, or choir.
