“Mornings With… .” Jenny Clarke, singer and founder of Melodia.
This big hunk of love is Jenga. He’s the happiest, snuggliest, and clumsiest cat in the city. With a purr like a motorboat engine and a glass-breaking operatic meow, the only thing keeping him from joining the Melodia ranks is the fact that he’s a boy. Sorry, Jenga.
(Melodia 2nd Soprano)

Mia is quite helpful at the computer. She answers emails, updates my webpage, and pretty much entered every note of “Mornings With You.” Mia the cat - soprano 1, diva extraordinaire.

Waking beside you … A cat purrs in the dawning of our arms, and night dreams scatter. — “Mornings With You” by Christina Whitten Thomas, Poetry by Pam McAllister
Here’s a photo of Liana reading her birthday card from her Grandma! Liana likes sleeping, snoozing, napping, and snuggling. She’s also a huge fan of eating :-) Her fur is as soft as a cloud and I love her to pieces.

“Grace” came to me through my churchyard, apparently abandoned there. I chose the name because I felt I could use a little grace in my life. She immediately became known as Grace Kelly Cat, though, since she is a bit of a princess.

Sammy loves coming to Melodia rehearsals and listening to the beautiful music we make. Along with enjoying the sweet sound of female voices, Sammy loves car rides, napping, playing with socks, and people food.

Violet (“what is violet?”). I named her that because her eyes were a dark blue when she was a tiny kitten.
