Class of 2022

David Jensen, President

Bass

David Jensen holds it down in the Bronx, NYC but was originally born in Texas (yeehaw).  His favorite food is “juicebox” and his least favorite food is alfalfa sprouts, although we’re not sure how he would eat “juicebox” considering that his favorite utensil is a spork. He once had an extra tooth in the roof of his mouth, but that didn’t stop him from learning how to play piano like a boss, thumb snap, and differentiate between his two cats coincidentally both named “cat.” The best angle to photograph him is from the front. David is also a board game master which he probably learned while traveling to 44 out of the 50 US states.

Charlotte Root

Soprano

Charlotte Root hails from the capital of the great Hoosier state, Indianapolis. Naturally, then, she wishes to be the female version of Indiana Jones, and is majoring in Art and Archaeology. In addition to lending her beautiful voice to R20’s soprano section, Charlotte is a part of Glee and chamber. She also plays the harp (her favorite piece is “Africa” by Toto). When she was two, she ate half a lady bug: “Not a whole one, just half!” she adamantly claims. Despite this, she is anything but half-hearted, enthusiastically bringing the whole of her triplet-self to the group every day.

  Diego Zamalloa-Chion

Bass

Diego is a super cool bass who brings his prodigious musical talents from Berkeley, California. Not only has Diego been playing piano and violin since he was a young kid, but he also is getting a jazz certificate at Princeton– along with a computer science major and neuroscience minor (casual.) When he’s not busy being incredibly musical and smart, Diego enjoys biking, watching YouTube to procrastinate video lectures, and making his Peruvian parents go vegetarian. He also is very funny and has the best one-liners of all time.

Anson Jones, Music Director

Alto

Hailing from Manhattan, Anson is her name, and jazz is her game! Coming straight out of the womb singing a low A, Anson sure knows how to pack a punch with her sweet yet powerful voice. One time, she tried to see if her musical skill extended to the clarinet, but she hated the instrument so much that she quit a year later. Sad reaccs only. You can find Anson on campus practicing with the Small Jazz Group A, the Jazz Big Band, the USG social committee, and *NOT* running because her knees are so bad.

Class of 2023

Tommy Kim

Bass

Tommy is a tenor from Atlanta, Georgia, and he’s a prospective chemistry major. He’s that kid who does everything; he not only produces dulcet tones with his vocal cords but also beatboxes, plays the drums, breakdances, and cooks great chicken and salmon (maybe even all at once, we’re not sure yet). Catch him delivering deadpan humor, showing everyone the best memes, and zipping around campus on his tiny skateboard like nobody’s business, but he’s perhaps best known for his notorious evil laugh that will send *actual* chills down your spine.

  Srija Makkapati

Soprano

Srija brings all her amazing talent from her hometown, Ellicott City, in Maryland. She is certainly no stranger to music – she’s been singing since the age of 3, is an avid piano player, and also has perfect pitch! When she’s not dabbling in her musical interests, Srija enjoys coding with the Princeton ACM. Regarding her quirkiness, you are more likely to win the lottery than see Srija wearing shoes during rehearsal! Srija also has an amazing sense of humor and a contagious laugh, so if you’re telling her a joke and she doesn’t find it funny, you’re probably doing it wrong!

Anthony Guerra

Tenor

Anthony is a strapping young man from Ridgefield, New Jersey. Though he majors in Computer Science, this tenor’s true passion is growing tangerines from the orchard he keeps in his bath tub. He claims they are from the hills of Madagascar, but we know the truth. Anthony is fluent in Spanish and Italian, and can count to ten in at least one other language. He is also an avid photographer whose Snapchat prowess and musical talents would put DJ Khaled to shame.

  

Jeb Carter

Tenor

Jeb! is a very tall tenor from Atlanta, GA. His charming charisma, dashing smile, and witty puns are setting him up to become president (of what, we do not know) one day, but since he plans on majoring in mechanical and aerospace engineering, we will not be surprised if he becomes President of the Known Universe. In his free time, he enjoys playing piano, guitar, and tennis, but not all at the same time. And that’s not all! Jeb! can also sail and perform magic tricks! Jeb! would definitely be the coolest president ever.

Julie Wilson

Alto

Julie is an alto from Newton, Massachusetts. She plans on deciding to major in Psychology or English on her way to becoming a doctor! Having begun her musical journey at the age of eight, she now plays the piano and guitar in addition to singing. She enjoys swimming, working with children, and laughing at almost anything. She once won 3 gallons of Skittles in a counting challenge and finished them in just two years! She also has a Truffle, named rabbit, (or vice versa?) who is very temperamental. Described by her parents as “a pleasant surprise,” she hopes to one day be as funny as her much older brother.

This could be you!
