More helpful information about auditioning for the Cats
We sing because we love it and we enjoy each other's company. This
is not a business venture, and any money we make goes into a kitty
(no pun intended) for general use by the group for expenses.
However, we are serious about the music we make and are committed to
the group and each other.
Rehearsals: Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to
9:30 pm at a Cat's home. We try to keep the rehearsals in a central
location, such as Coolidge Corner (Brookline) or Wellesley, but on
occasion we meet in Framingham. You should note that these places
are not necessarily T accessible, so if you don't have a car, you'll
need to carpool with another Cat. Rehearsals are important, so if
you currently have a Tuesday night engagement, then perhaps this is
not the best time for you to audition. We do understand that we all
have real lives, though, and we try to work things out when we can.
Audition Schedule: We will schedule up to three people each half
hour. We ask that you prepare a short piece to sing for us (a
cappella, of course). We will also do some exercises to check your
range and musicality e.g. singing back a sequence of notes, picking
out a note in a chord. We will also teach you a part of one of our
arrangements where we will be looking for blend, how quickly you
learn the part, if you can hold your part while others around you are
singing other parts, etc. PLEASE NOTE THAT READING MUSIC IS NOT A
REQUIREMENT! We are just as interested in people who can learn by
We look forward to hearing from you! If you have any other
questions, please let us know.
