Megan Noseworthy; Soprano
Megan is in her second year at McGill in English: Drama and Theatre, and Gender, Sexuality, Feminism, and Social Justice Studies. (Yes, it's a mouthful. Please don't ask her what she plans to do with her degree.) Originally from the small town of Summerland, BC, she loves the freedom of city life here in Montréal and the innumerable opportunities that come with it. Megan adores singing, is a huge musical theatre nerd, and can generally be found either eating or watching television/movies (most likely both). She is beyond ecstatic to be a part of Chromatones, and looks forward to rehearsals every week! What do the French call a really bad Thursday? A trajeudi.
Madeleine Brenner; Soprano
Madeleine Brenner is in U0, and undeclared in the faculty of arts. She enjoys hiking, traveling, biking, and spending time with her family. She loves performing, and has been in various musicals, plays, and choirs since she was in grade school.

Tara has been singing since she was 3 years old and has performed in several theatre productions, her favourites of which include Legally Blonde, Fame and A Chorus line. When she is not singing, Tara loves binge watching Netflix and eating lots of good food. She is thrilled to be singing with the Chromatones who are not only an amazing singing group but have also become her family at McGill. Why was the musician arrested? He was in treble.
Katharine Mulderry; Alto 1
Katharine is a U2 student studying economics and the Earth's environment. Katharine loves to sing and does so everywhere she goes, which warrants a lot of “why are you singing” and “ma’am please, it’s two in the morning and this is a library, you need to leave.” Other than singing Katharine loves to watch a whole lot of television and movies and then quote them back to you as if they were real life. She is ECSTATIC to be in Chromatones is loving every second of it! What do you call a snobbish criminal going downstairs? a condescending con descending.
Ellie Reynolds; Alto 2
Ellie Reynolds is a U2 Environment student at McGill who grew up in sunny Los Angeles and can’t remember why she thought she could handle the Great White North. She enjoys singing, watching good television, listening to old school hip hop, reading adventure novels, kayaking, and—most of all—Mexican food. She also hasn’t had a decent taco in months so if anyone knows of any genuinely good Mexican restaurants in Montreal please hmu asap (I never say asap unless it’s an emergency).
Emily Kendrick-Brajou; Alto 2
Emily is new to McGill and is so happy to part of Chromatones A Cappella! Emily grew up in London, UK and is half British, half French. Emily has taken part in many different choirs and was in an a cappella group in high school! She also plays piano and violin. To sum up: she loves music and singing! Dancing is another favourite, although she can’t actually dance very well. Emily is an Arts student studying Latin American Studies and loves to speak Spanish! Other hobbies include watching movie marathons with friends and staying up late talking!
Maya Lewis; Alto 2
Maya Lewis is a first year art history student at McGill. Originally from Vancouver BC, she is (successfully!) adapting to life in Montreal, in university, and in chromatones. She hopes she looks like she knows what she's doing. Maya has a special place in her heart for the fine arts and can usually be found either singing or drawing. Her default expression is a smile - she loves to observe the world around her and be entranced by the wonders of life, big and small. And yes, not to worry, she is very aware of how cheesy that sounds.
Mariel White; Tenor
Mariel is a third year at McGill studying Political Science. She enjoys fun facts, musicals, corny jokes, and cheesy pick-up lines. Before coming to the beautiful city of Montreal Mariel lived in Annapolis, Maryland. Fun Fact: Annapolis is the oldest state capitol still in use today. When not singing Mariel can be found drinking copious amounts of coffee and attempting to study while actually watching Netflix. I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said thank you. I said 'don't mention it.'
Jad Tal; Tenor 1
Hailing from the lands of the Middle East, Jad has live in three different places: Dubai (born there), Toronto (more like GTA), and Beirut, Lebanon. Jad is a U3 student in Honours Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies. He started singing as the ~ kewl kid ~ he was in 8th grade. Being the "grandfather" of the group, Jad has a lot of love for the Chrome family, and is really excited for Chromatones this year. He hopes to see you at one of our gigs in the near future!
Joke: I know this joke is cheesy, but it's grate.
Arjun Gupta; Beatboxer
Arjun was born and raised in France. He is half French, half Indian and has been to India on numerous occasions. After doing a first year in Scotland, he transferred to McGill and absolutely loves it here. Arjun is studying Computer Science. He is dedicated, patient, and perfectionist. He is also starting to enjoy writing about himself in the third person. He complies with many of the snobbish French stereotypes, such as not drinking wine that does not come from France, saying too many times “In France we […]”, and complaining about not finding (non-expensive) good cheese. He enjoys all sports in general, and plays the Saxophone. Arjun is tremendously grateful and proud to be in the big Chromatones family. “Why can’t bicycles stand on their own? Because they are two tired.”
Nabeel Khan; Baritone
Nabeel is in both his third year at McGill and Chromatones. Originally born in India, he moved to New Hampshire at a young age and has been chasing the American Dream ever since. He's studying international development and economics. In his free time he enjoys bodybuilding, reading, and counting calories.
Brock Jenken; Bass
Coming from the countryside of Denfield, Ontario (he usually says London), Brock “that guy from Pokémon” Jenken is a U1 biochemistry student despite his father’s wishes for him to become a dairy farmer. Coming from a family of six children and four parents, Brock has been involved with music heavily through his life, performing with London’s Amabile choir, preparing for his ARCT in piano performance, and singing with Alzheimer’s patients under London’s Alzheimer’s society. When not rehearsing with his fellow Chromies, he enjoys photographing pretty much anything, devoting unhealthy amounts of time to video games, and long walks on the beach. Being one of the few people at McGill who lives on a dairy farm, Brock prides himself in his ability to imitate Holstein cattle, drink ungodly amounts of milk, and identify types of crops. What do you call a cow that doesn’t give milk? An udder failure.
Florian Wong; Bass & Beatboxer
Florian is a French - Hongkongese student who is currently studying Management at McGill.
Apart from being a closet-nerd and an MMA enthusiast, he enjoys making weird noises with his mouth (and has proclaimed himself a beatboxer). As such, he also loves boots and cats.
Florian is often found guilty of jamming out too many technical beats during the day, and practicing a countless number of bassy routines at night (and has unfortunately woken up his neighbours on quite a few occasions).
