Little Snow Cat
by John Vooys
SSA with piano – CP 1857 – duration 3:30
The Little Snow Cat in the song refers to my nieces Zoe and Lucy, who love pretending to be animals. I wrote the song to contrast a child’s eagerness for life to happen, and a parent’s (or uncle’s) wish that life wouldn’t fly by so quickly. (Little Snow Cat was the overall winner of the 2019 Warren County Promising Young Composers Competition)
