Happy #MemberMonday! This week we truly have a special Pennharmonic. Not only is he humorous and charismatic, his heart and kindness speak volumes! This week we are featuring one of our fearless baritones… Jayce Coleman! Jayce hails from Doylestown, Pennsylvania and is a junior at Penn State. He is studying Materials Science and Engineering. Outside of The Pennharmonics, Jayce is involved with the Penn State Lion Ambassadors and also RebuildU. During the 2018 spring break, Jayce actually traveled to Honduras on a service trip to help build a road and work in an AIDS clinic. Jayce decided to attend Penn State because of the right mixture of family tradition, collegiate pride, and the innumerable opportunities available to students! Jayce decided to join The Pennharmonics for many reasons, he states, “I love music. The Pennharmonics had the right balance of passion for music and striving passion to improve its members as individual musicians and as a group.” Jayce’s favorite memory as a Pennharmonic was the spring tour following his freshman year at Penn State. He loves to sing “You Go Down Smooth.” This past summer Jayce was quite a busy guy! Jayce spent a large portion of his summer in Provence, France, studying wine culture and the French language. Additionally, Jayce spent some quality time with his family and friends. We are getting into the swing of things at Penn State and are looking forward to an exciting year ahead of making great music for all of you! Check back next week to see who our next #MemberMonday is!

This week our #MemberMonday is coming a day late because we have been so busy trying to find our new family members! Auditions began yesterday and will continue today from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the Thomas Building! This week we are featuring our fearless and talented music director for the upcoming year… Tony Coffey! Tony is from Bethesda, Maryland. At Penn State, Tony is studying Risk Management, Economics, and Spanish. Tony has an interest in pursuing a career in real estate. Outside of the Pennharmonics, Tony is involved in the Penn State Statesmen a cappella group, Alpha Kappa Psi, the Penn State Real Estate Association, and the Penn State Economics Association. As you can tell, Tony is a busy bee on campus. Tony decided to attend Penn State because his grandparents are alumni of the University. “It’s kind of been a PSU longtime sell since I was about eight years old. As soon as I stepped on campus, I loved the community feel,” he stated. As a baritone in the group, Tony chose the Pennharmonics because he wanted to be surrounded by talented people, with a musical taste similar to his own. Tony has loved being introduced to new members of the group each year and his favorite song is “Guillotine.” This past summer, Tony interned at a real estate financial consultancy! We are excited for a great year ahead! Be sure to check us out this upcoming Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at The Family Clothesline as we perform before the first Penn State home football game!

It’s the first day of classes here in Happy Valley! We are so excited to be back and cannot wait to get started! This week we are featuring one of our favorite senior members. She is caring, hardworking, and passionate with a keen sense of humor....It is not only Natalie Crosson’s feature… it is also her twenty-first birthday! Natalie, a senior Health Policy and Administration major, is from Old Bridge, New Jersey. The Pennharmonics hand picked Natalie to become a family member in the spring of 2017 as a soprano. Outside of the Pennharmonics, Natalie has been heavily involved with THON, the world’s largest student-run philanthropy event. Natalie served as a public relations captain last year. Natalie decided to become a Nittany Lion because of the prestigious and unique major she wanted to pursue. Natalie auditioned for the Pennharmonics because of the cool and unique sound. She just loves the music selections! It is hard for Natalie to pick her favorite Pennharmonics’ memory because there are just too many to choose from. Her favorite Pennharmonics’ number is “Burning House.” This summer Natalie was working very hard to make some money before her big study abroad trip to Ireland this fall! We wish Natalie the very best and we cannot wait until she returns to us in the fall to end her senior year on a high note! Once again, happy birthday Natalie! We are so very lucky to have you! Your personality is like no other and we are so fortunate to have you in our group. Check back next week to see who the next #MemberMonday feature is!
