Dischord Presents: FRIENDS

Meyerson Hall B1

April 2nd, 1:30 & 7 PM

  • Dischord.

Founded in 1998.


Meet Dischord.

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 15 Indie A Cappella covers . However, we also like to think Dischord is 0.49 music and 0.51 family. We like to let our family keep majority ownership. Meet us and see why.

  • Jon Potter, '18
    President, Bass

    Dischord’s resident Danny Zuko, our little Potter has set the bar really high after showing us his killer dance moves during auditions. Self-described as “not your typical Scarsdale Jew,”He often grapples with big questions in life, such as “What frat should I join?” or “How many hours of sleep can I not get the night before my compsci midterm?” We’re here for you, Potter.

  • Liam Murphy, '18
    Music Director, Tenor

    Liam can actually play real instruments which makes him automatically cooler than 95% of the current group. At first glance, this heart-throb tenor seems to be pure innocence, but the truth is, he is known for his ability to throw shade at any given moment. When it comes to the music, he’s “no funny business,” but Liam is sure to be corrupted by Dischord very soon, so stay tuned.

  • Erin Guiltinan, '16
    Assistant Music Director, Mezzo

    Erin doesn't have a soul, so we accepted this going into the group as an act of community service. You’d never catch her in sweats and no makeup, but you can always catch her squealing while stalking One Direction on Tumblr.

  • Caroline Sambuco, '18
    Business Manager, Soprano

    This sassy soprano can sing opera just as well as she can sing tween pop music. Affectionately known as C.C. because, in her own words, “names are just a social construct,” Caroline has definitely been corrupted by Dischord. She spends most of her time talking about how much she loves Penn Singers and Math 104.

  • Connor Mounts, '18
    Graphic & Web Designer, Bass

    Mounts might be a little too comfortable in Dischord already, but we’ll go with it. A bath enthusiast, Mounts is always up for some quality time with his rubber ducky after a long night of partying. He lives in Hill so he usually cabs to every rehearsal (and he still manages to be late somehow- nice Mounts!).

  • Logan Kesel, '17
    Secretary, Alto

    When she's not busy showing us pictures of the most disgusting things, she loves to be really, really, really..really loud. Like really loud. Good, but loud. It's impressive actually.

  • Elyse Shenberger '16

    Elyse doesn’t want much in life – just the simple things. Give her a ton of ibuprofen and she’s one happy kid. When she’s not adding a country twang to every song she sings, she’s busy muttering Gru impersonations to herself. Her favorite hobby is getting injured.

  • Liza Goodspeed '17

    Our baby freshman may not be super in-the-know (“What’s BoltBus?” “What’s BuzzFeed?”), but her rock solid butt counts for something, right? If you’re not careful, she’ll straight up lick your face. But she can also be serious sometimes, OKAY?!

  • Gabriela Rodriguez, '17

    Gabi is a little Puerto Rican diva with a huge voice. She has 4 names like all hispanic people, and rumor has it her first name might actually be Sarah? She knows how to move her hips and has tried to teach other members of the group; however, her attempts have been unsuccessful.

  • Sophia Tareen, '17

    Don’t be fooled by her sweetness, she has a real soulful voice that’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. We think Sophia might have a midterm every single day of the week because she’s ALWAYS studying. She keeps it Chi-O classy which adds a nice balance to the group.

  • Dorothy Newman, '18

    Dorothy is definitely not in Kansas anymore since she decided to join this group of crazy people. But don’t let her silence fool you, her sarcasm is always on point. Dorothy spends just as much time at home by the Jersey Shore as she does at Penn. Welcome to the fam, Snooki!

  • Amine Sahmoud, '17

    This 6’4’’ bundle of dynamite is the newest addition to Dischord’s hott mess clan and also the bass section. Amine is obviously an over achiever, reminding us of his impending bio degree, and becoming MVP of the group chat just 3 short days after his acceptance into Dischord. He might seem intimidating because of his towering stature, but he really loves to cuddle.

  • Meghan Chapman, '18

    Huge fan of late night McDonald's, wearing all white with flip flops, and music. That's all you need to know.

  • Ben Roggen, '18

    As you can see above, he's the life of the party... or maybe just the stripper they hired for entertainment. Either way, this Fiji got his priorities straight and stuck with the group unlike his swedish brother.

  • Eric Dardet, '18

    This Puerto Rican angel can massage your ears in Spanish, English, and Italian. While you may not always understand what he's saying the only words you'll want to utter in the presence of his voice are more, mas, e piu (Those all mean more)

  • Nazih Bissat, '18

    A member of Castle, Nazih is the scene, and his aca-bop will have you falling out of your seat.

  • Arhamul Amin, '18
    Vocal Percussion

    I would like to have something to say here, but just like his predecessor, Arhamul realized very quickly that beat boxer's only show up for gigs, so I haven't really met him yet.

  • Alisia Escobar, '19

    Definitely thought theta. Alisia really stands out from the crowd in the all black attire that her, and the other 200 members of her sorority are always wearing, kidding, but if you do manage to spot her, and she happens to be singing, you'll be amazed at how much talent someone managed to fit in only 5ft of person.

  • Mackenzie Holmes, '19

    The only thing shorter than Alisia in this group is Mackenzie's attention span. Seriously, what are we talking about.
