Why audition for the Aristocats?
We are a fun-loving and welcoming group dedicated to spreading Disney magic around the Wash U campus! We are more than just an a cappella group — we are a family. In joining an a cappella group, the friends you make and the music you create will be essential components of an unforgettable college experience. We would love to be a part of that for you!
Do I need previous singing experience?
We don’t require it, but we are looking for a good sense of pitch and tone. Basic music reading ability is also highly recommended. That being said, our current members range from professional performers to simple shower singers!
Do I need to prepare a Disney song?
Nope! Pick any song you love to sing that shows off your voice. It would be preferable for you to pick something that’s well known or something a few of us would have heard before. If you know your vocal range, try to pick something within it.
What is the time commitment?
We rehearse roughly 6 hours a week and do two concerts a year, as well as gigs at WashU events and around the St. Louis community. Though it is a time commitment, it is nothing unmanageable. We’ve had group members participate in all sorts of other activities as well, including varsity athletics, undergraduate research, Greek life, etc. while still maintaining full course loads.
Sounds good! How do I sign up?
Fall 2022 auditions will be held from September 2nd-4th. We know it may feel intimidating, but remember to just have fun with it and show us who you are! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need help or have any questions We can’t wait for you to join the Aristocats fam! The signup link for auditions is coming soon!
