An A Cappella group started at the University of Pennsylvania in 1998, Dischord has grown significantly over the past couple years, performing at pre-superbowl events like the Silver Chord Bowl in Massachusetts and boasting a feature on Buzzfeed for top 17 Indie A Cappella covers. However, we also like to think Dischord is 49% music and 51% family. 

Meet us and see why.

 
Tara Mehta - President   In West Philadelphia, Tara was born and raised, but in Dischord is where she'll spend the rest of her days. When Tara isn't listening to Young the Giant, Ed Sheeran, and Queen, you can catch her cooking, watching baseball, eating carbs, and, of course, making bad puns. Although in Wharton, Tara promises she isn't a snake. She may sometimes be salty, but she goes to Penn so she's not so-dium.

Evan Thomas - Co-Music Director   This guy has soul and some sweet tenderness in his voice that you’ve never heard before. On top of that, Evan is our king of rhythm in the tenor and bass section. Outside of Dischord, Evan enjoys staying in touch with his faith and dropping lineas hermosas de español. Catch him humming his favorite tunes around Harrison!

Kevin Liman - Co-Music Director   Though this Sydney, Australia native hails from Down Under, he’s taken our group to new heights with his smooth voice and killer dance moves. Kevin’s favorite Dischord memory is the first time we sang September, as “there was something really special about the way all our voices came together” (aww). A proud member of Huntsfam2021, soon our French- and Bahasa Indonesia-speaking friend will be running the world in Silicon Valley.

Aaron Kahane   Towering over basically everyone else in the group (especially Alisia), Mr. Aaron Kahane is an incredibly versatile singer. When the Manhattan native and youngest of 4 siblings isn’t hitting the gym or swimming on the Penn club team, Aaron is working with Tamid, a club that consults for Israeli start-ups. All in all, Aaron is a hell of a singer, a hell of a person, and he played Troy in his high school production of “High School Musical” so feel free to make fun of him for that.

Bianca Altamirano - Secretary   Growing up loving High School Musical, Bianca has always been getting her head in the game. To list a few of her many talents, Bianca is an incredible soprano for Dischord, ukulele player, and varsity frisbee extraordinaire for Penn. You can always find her with a smile watching Big Brother, traveling across South America, or munching on burger and fries. She is an awesome member of Dischord, and we can’t wait to see the great things she will accomplish.

Isabella Mancene - Webmaster   Isabella may be small, but, don't be fooled - she is mighty. When in doubt, you can find Isabella in the gym just working on her fitness. When Isabella isn't lifting, she's usually eating peanut butter, sleeping, or cracking cheesy jokes. Isabella may be embarrassed to admit that her middle school social media username was livelovesing33. We don't judge. We're just glad she now gets to live, love, and sing with Dischord.

Sara Seyed   Sara "seed" Seyed is a girl of many talents. When not dropping some mad harmonies, you can catch Sara running to a hot yoga class. Or in the art/music studio for questionably long periods at a time. Or killing mice (don’t worry, lab mice). Or crying at literally ANY movie (examples include Whiplash, Amélie, It, and Inside Out). What can’t she do? Cook. Do NOT ask her to cook.

Alex Auchus   Just like his Starbucks order, an americano with a shot of espresso, Alex's voice is smooth, strong, and full of energy. Alex is a worldly man. Born in Singapore, he can "slightly" speak Spanish. When he's not showing off his backflips, you'll catch Alex studying outside Frontera, eating, hanging out, or attempting to play the ukelele. Alex is proud and excited to be part of the Dischord family!

Maggie Browdy   In many ways, Maggie embodies her hometown of Chicago. Whether running to Dischord rehearsal, from a WAB meeting, or along the Schuykill, she's always on the move. She's also got that Midwestern kindness and positivity and a sense of pride (toward Dischord) that can only be compared to that of Cubs fans. Like her love of Chicago, her love of Dischord runs deep (dish haha get it).

Cole Marshall   As his Instagram username suggests, Cole is quite the Croatian sensation. A man of many talents, he not only is a fabulous singer, but he’s also an actor, a beast at ultimate frisbee, a magician, and does a mean Obama impression. On a normal day, you might find him on his bike, eating pizza, or jamming out to Earth, Wind & Fire and Bill Withers. Even though his vocabulary is pretty “kooky”, we couldn’t be happier to have him in Dischord.

Maya Hairston   A true pasta addict. Although she may be alfredo heights, Maya has proved she is stroganoff to take on any challenge that comes her way. We cannoli imagine the pretty penne other a cappella groups would pay to have her on their team. If she’s not singing, Maya is probably writing poetry, breaking her left ankle, or downing some angel hair in Perelman. But her voice as well as her smile can brighten any room, so pasta mic to Maya and she will show you why she is one of Dischord’s sauciest sopranos.
