One might think that it would be easy for a dashing, charming, "good Catholic boy" to get a gig in New England. One might be wrong. I am woefully unprepared for how difficult it can be for a man with no network to get five minutes of time with local directors of liturgy and music to hit them up for the occasional cantoring gig. I should have known better than to try on a Monday. Everyone knows that church musicians are all sleeping off the weekend every Monday. Some of these gals and guys play three or four services every Sunday! Of course they deserve Monday off. Except when I need to hit them up for jobs!!! I'll try again some more tomorrow. In the meantime... I'ma walk the streets of New Haven looking for work.
