The number one thing on her bucket list is to pet a bear one day.
Hannah Friedman (Co-Music Director) is a junior who is one of those rare New Jersey kids at GW. She is studying political science and women’s studies.

When she’s not singing constantly, she can be found eating a lot of chocolate, jamming out to Taylor Swift music, watching Disney movies, playing lacrosse, winning peoples’ love with her great wit, or just spending time with friends. If you’re every looking for a present to give her she appreciates chocolate and also dogs (though she already has three). She’s so excited to sing with the Pitches this year and every year!!

Sophia is so thankful to be part of the A Cappella Community and she cannot wait to be a part of the GW Pitches through her time at GW.
Brianna Massey is a sophomore in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences. She hails from Grand Rapids, Michigan and is a firm believer that it’s “pop” not “soda.” When Brianna isn’t singing you can find her saying “hi” to everyone she sees, obsessing over dogs or dancing to trap music.
