Rush is the audition process through which new Yale first-years can become a part of the Alley Cats. Rush takes place during the fall semester at the start of each academic year, beginning with two performances so that you can hear what each a cappella group sounds like: Woolsey Jam and Dwight Jam. From there, you can sign up for an audition and start the process!
The Alley Cats is a member of the Yale Singing Group Council (SGC), an umbrella organization that represents 16 undergraduate a cappella groups. The SGC organizes rush, along with other events throughout the year. More information about rush and a cappella at Yale can be found at www.yalesgc.com.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact our Rush Managers:
