Off the Beat

About Us

Off the Beat, now in its 29th year, is the University of Pennsylvania’s modern rock a cappella group. Since its inception, the group has won over 25 CARA awards, the highest honor in a cappella music. Their songs have been featured numerous times on compilations such as Voices Only and the BOCA: Best of College A Cappella series. In addition to the concerts produced every semester, the group has performed all over Philadelphia, the Northeast, and the country to much acclaim. Some of our favorites include opening for Sing Off winners “Committed” during their tour, performing for Philadelphia Eagles VIP members at Lincoln Financial Field, marriage proposals, and our recent spring break tours to Los Angeles and Puerto Rico.

Members

Sopranos:

Anna Kanter ’17

Anna Webstie pic

Anna Kanter is a Sophomore from Evanston, Illinois majoring in Health and Societies with a potential minor in BBB. When she’s not hanging out with her PennQuest group or chilling in WilCaf, she loves exploring new restaurants and riding her bike. Don’t be thrown off by the 300+ likes on her profile pictures or her Birkenstocks–they’re “cool” where she comes from.

Madeline Kleypas ’17

Maddie's Website pic

Maddie hails from Temple, Texas and proves that those sweet southern belles still do exist. With a fierce mind, this beauty writes for a neuro blog with a potential major in Health and Societies with a concentration in Global Health or Communications. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, she can belt a fierce soprano mélange of twang and  utter sweetness. This girl is better than some home made iced lemonade on a hot day.

Shilpa Sadagopan ’19

Runs on runs on runs on runs.  Our residential riff queen is prepared for anything with her large collection of colorful leggings and ready-to-go puns. This sassy soprano is never afraid to put people in their place (*cough* *cough* Rohan) and singlehandedly increases Off the Beat’s Beyonce-factor tenfold.  Just one listen to her smooth, sultry vocals and we guarantee you’ll be head over heels.

 

Mezzos:

Jasmine Barksdale ‘16

Jasmine Bio

Jasmine Barksdale is a Junior in the Wharton School of Business and business manager of Off The Beat. She is currently undecided but she hopes to complete a minor in International Relations with the College. Being from rural Minnesota, she loves to take advantage of the abundance of lakes, forests, green spaces and the game Duck, Duck, Gray Duck – the Minnesotan adaptation of Duck, Duck, Goose. Unfortunately, none of these are very abundant in Philadelphia and so she relieves her stress by listening to either classical music or rap.

Eleanor Thompson ’17

Ellie website pic

 Eleanor is a Political Science and Psychology double-major born and raised right here in Philadelphia. When this fiery bangin’ blonde mezzo is not gracing your ears belting out sweet low tunes and glorious Beyonce runs, you can bet she’s at the gym sculpting out those rock hard abs and killer biceps. But don’t be intimidated by her awesome, everyone falls in love with this fierce flower-child bombshell’s sensual vocals and glowing heart.

Ana Miletić ’18

11182218_1834413070117168_6145422571308226975_n

 Ana’s eternal quest to find and marry the perfect Novak Djokovic-lookalike has taken her all over the world from Serbia, to New Jersey, to Massachusetts, and finally here to Penn!  So, since she was here anyway, Ana decided to audition for Off the Beat and immediately blew us away with her Serbian audition song. When this cutie mezzo/soprano isn’t studying for midterms three months away or raising the roof up in DuBois (Collegeboard Rated #1 College Dorm in America), you can find her baking her deceptively delicious vegan baked goods or riffing in her adorable Boba Fett onesie.  BUT FAIR WARNING: Utter one bad thing about Serbia, and prepare yourself for a beatdown of the century.

 

Altos:

Emily Fisher ‘17

Emily Bio pic

 Emily Fisher is a Sophomore from Mechanicsburg, PA. When she’s not slaying alto (and sometimes tenor) parts, this SDT sister and rock star is working in West Philly Schools, making paper at SFCU and impressing you with her assortment of patterned tights.

Melanie Bow ‘18

12091191_937727112959600_42472160655277992_o

 Melbow is a Sophomore from Connecticut majoring in history and minoring in intellectual history. Melbow is a joy to be around and is always one to crack a joke and share some laughs. If you’re lucky enough, you might get to hear her British male drug dealing voice. In addition to a fabulously fun personality, Melbow has a sultry Alto tone that is sure to wow. And no, Melbow does not stand for massive elbow, rather Melanie Bow!

Tenors:

Brian Park ’18

10473325_10203075752763627_5053307961439382952_o

Brian is a freshman minoring in the Biological Basis of Behavior. I think we all collectively knew we were in love with this goofy guy when he showed up to callbacks wearing panda slippers. (Way to perpetuate the stereotype, Brian…) In all seriousness, Brian is an outgoing and chill dude with an incredible tenor tone. To the best of our knowledge, he has not yet taken off his OTB sweatshirt, a mark of true devotion.

Eric Chen ’18

1960889_10152820826849250_2523362687816346030_o

Eric Chen is a Freshman majoring in Chemistry. How did we last so many years without Eric’s kickass tenor belt, amazing dance moves, obsession with barbershop quartets (rightfully so; he’s in one!), and always funny–and often punny–jokes?? That’s a mystery, but what we know for sure is that his punk rocker voice will blow you into the next “Centuries”.

 

Alex Kalvar ’19

12079811_10207906505084970_167919377160735277_o

Perhaps you might be able to figure out where this crazy range tenor is from… Alex dawns his Purple Pain jersey every Sunday and rumor has it he has attended every Baltimore Ravens game since 1900. Although he hasn’t sang the national anthem (yet), Alex holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest male range (not actually, but he should). If OTB needed Alex to sing soprano, you better bet your bottom dollar he could.

 

Baritones:

Rohan Waghani ’16

Rohan Bio pic

 Rohan Waghani is beautiful.  That’s all there is to it.

Andrew Frederick ’18

10891594_998335136847296_1762856427816294084_n

Andrew “Fred” Frederick is a baritone in the engineering school. He may look like a cutie pie, but he often likes to belt about how much he wants to tear the whole world down. This Phi brother also likes to beatbox, go around saying “Oh my days,” and have dog-related bumper stickers on his car. If you have any further questions, please refer to 1-800-call-fred.

Josh Kahn ’19

11845076_890923604276682_5520062409806262678_o

 Josh is a Freshman from Chicago and is leaning towards an English major. “J-Kahn” captivated us with his Chicago slang, great stage presence, and innate OTB voice. When “J-Con” popped out of the womb, he was holding a microphone and was belting MK Ultra. A combination of Shakespeare and Freddie Mercury, (ladies, not all at once!) J-Kahn is one of a kind.

Basses:

Jae Joon (JJ) Lee ’17

JJ Bio pic

 JJ is a Sophomore from SOUTH Korea who spent half of his life elsewhere, like Vietnam, Canada, and Cambodia. Majoring in Computer Science, JJ is always excited to serve Kobie as his bass disciple. When he is not singing, eating, or avoiding homework he’s..wait no, that’s all he does.  There are rumors that he can rap. There are also rumors that he is Haneol in disguise (see Haneol Jeong below).  But really, he’s PSY.

Haneol Jeong ’18

 Haneol Jeong is a sophomore in the Wharton School of Business. He’s currently undecided – AKA he will probably end up going into finance. You might be wondering how he’s already in OTB when set to graduate in 2018.  Here’s the story: when Haneol joined OTB, he felt that he wasn’t edgy enough for us, so he decided to sharpen his cheek bones. When he realized that this just wasn’t going to cut it, he decided to go serve the South Korean army for two years. #Deuces

Evan Brink ’19

12119997_1503944173254944_4173903997576278454_o

 Honestly, there’s nothing this newbie bass can’t do!  When he isn’t trekking through his Penngineering workload or breaking young girls’ hearts, you can find him killing it in Glee Club, shredding guitar in his band (SO OTB) or working at a Wendy’s near you!  An incredible addition to our family, Evan “brinks” another extraordinary rock voice and another voluptuous head of hair to Off the Beat.  Come check him out in concert and you’ll be in awe of his incredible range and booming bass technique.
