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!
