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 0.49 music and 0.51 family. 

Meet us and see why.

 
  Alisia Escobar - President   Although not the biggest member of Dischord, Alisia sure does have one of the strongest voices in the group - her smooth riffs and runs will hypnotize an audience. When she’s not downtown, she’s either swinging from the chandelier or at Sweetgreen having a soup and an organic gluten-free salad. One thing we know for sure is that we’re all relieved that she chose Dischord.

  Alec Escobar - Co-Music Director   One of the members of Dischord’s incredible sophomore class, Alec is happy to be stepping into the role of co-music director this year. While his music soul is based in the 70’s, you can also find him jamming to Ed, Mayer, Misch, and pretty much anything Sara suggests. When he’s not in Dischord, you can find him cramming in VP or playing live music at City Tap, from where some say he never leaves. Being related to Alisia sure does have its perks when it comes to pipes—the Escobars must be doing it right.

  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.

  Maggie Browdy - Business Manager   Hailing from Chicago (yes, the city), Maggie is a jack of all trades. Using her Wharton-y skills, she’s in charge of gigs! She also is a member of the business staff of Bloomers, so whenever she says something funny, someone is bound to say “wait, are you in Bloomers” despite the fact that she does not write nor perform for them. Maggie can be seen speed walking down Locust post rehearsal to get to her less artistic (cough…nerdier…) commitment: WAB. We will never stop making fun of her for it.

  Isabella Mancene - Secretary   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.

  Tara Mehta - Webmaster   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.

  Nazih Bissat   Nazih is a Lebanese Legend with a smokey voice that will give you all the feels. His passionate powerhouse vocals contradict his quiet, chill demeanor, but boy does this guy have soul. Nazih impressed us with his raw musical talent and intuitive arrangements. When he's not deep in engineering coursework, you can catch him DJing a Castle late night.

  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.

  Nirvikar Singh   As Dischord's Sikh GQ model, Nirvikar's style is on point both visually and musically. He can make any song, whether classic or country, a sexy, soulful serenade full of passion and pain. When he's not bringing tears to your eyes with his heartfelt melodies, he studies business. He also may be out on a run, at the tennis court or at the ping pong table looking for Mrs. Right.

  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!

  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   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.

  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.
