Member Mondays - Featuring: Catherine Doyle!
Meet Catherine “Doyle” Doyle
All things Cape Harmony!
Q: How did you hear about Cape Harmony?
A: "A member of my a cappella group at school, All of the Above, was in the group for a couple summers and she told me to audition."
Q: What have you learned this summer in CH?
A: "I’ve learned a lot…I guess the most important thing I've learned is how incredible it is making music with people you truly care about and respect. I think living with nine girls has taught me about balancing work and friendship."
Q: What’s your favorite CH memory?
A: "I think my favorite Cape Harmony memory is when we sang for a full airplane, 250 thousand feet in the air, even though I hate planes and I hate flying."
Q: How has collegiate a cappella prepared you for a professional a cappella group?
A: "Well, I was first introduced to the a cappella world when I got to Drew. Before then, I only really knew it from movies…so I guess it just really introduced me to everything I'd been missing out on for 17 years."
Q: What will you miss most about CH ’16?
A: "I’ll miss living in a house with my best friends and being able to share clothes and share good food and share laughs."
More about Catherine!
Q: What was the last thing you did for the very first time?
A: "I feel like I've done a lot of new things this summer, but something that’s sticking out in my mind is Cape Harmony's brief stint with paddle boarding. It didn’t really work out well for me. I don’t really have good balance. So. Yeah."
Q: What’s the worst gift you ever received?
A: "Oh my gosh. I feel mean saying anything. What if they read this?"
Q: If you were responsible for throwing a theme party, what would you make the theme?
A: "Nautical themed. 100%. Lots of teal and anchors."
Q: What makes you laugh the hardest?
A: "I guess what makes me laugh the most is my friends doing ridiculous things, which not surprisingly happens very often."
Q: What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
A: "You know, I feel like it’s a mix between really high energy, feel good tracks and mellow dramatic ballads, with a couple show tunes thrown in."
Q: What do you miss most about being a kid?
A: "Something I miss most about my childhood is every Tuesday night I would sit in the kitchen with my dad and share a bag of Smart Pop popcorn, and then we would go into the living room and watch American idol together."
Q: If you were reincarnated as an animal, what would it be?
A: "100% a monkey. I feel like monkeys just have a lot of fun, just swinging from vine to vine. They spit things at people. I feel like monkeys just have a lot of good laughs, ya know? Good times."
Q: Is a picture worth a thousand words?
A: "Nah. I think that’s over rated. I think a thousand words are probably worth a thousand words."
Q: If you could travel back in time, what year would you travel to?
A: "1920. I’d love to show up at an underground jazz club in a flapper girl dress. That seems like a really cool time to be alive."
Q: Are you a clean or messy person?
A: "I would definitely say I'm a messy person. I usually put most of my things in piles, but I can be organized if need be."
