Kate Wardenburg is a Senior originally from Frankfort, IL (she lives in St. Louis now though!) and is pre-MD/PhD majoring in Microbiology with a minor in Writing. She serves as one of the Whispers’ Music Directors. Kate also is involved with Cast N’ Crew student theater, is a Nemerov Scholar, conducts antibiotic resistance research at the medical school, and dabbles in photography. Kate has a clinical obsession with Star Wars but, like, it’s fine…
Samara Lillioja is a Senior sopalto from Burr Ridge, IL double majoring in Math and Psychology with a minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. When she’s not with Whispers, she often can’t be found at all because she’s alone in her room taking a nap (or on an adventure to John’s donuts). She enjoys long naps on the beach, watching TV with friends, and watching TV alone.
Ben Milan-Polisar is a Senior from Westchester, NY, majoring in Psychology and Marketing with a minor in Drama. When not doing Whisper things, Ben can be found dancing with Wash U Dance Theater, eating inordinate amounts of goat cheese, seeing/listening to/talking about musical theatre, and most importantly, using all of these other activities to procrastinate and leave all of his work until the last possible moment.
Jonathan is a Junior from Cary, North Carolina, potentially majoring in Environmental Biology. Outside of the Whispers Jonathan is a D3 club swimmer, slowest in his lane. He is also involved with Camp Kesem, is a frat star, and goes to the “gym” to “workout”.
Michael Katz is a Junior baritone from New York City. Don’t ask him what he’s studying. But in all seriousness, Michael decided to start the pre-med track his second year at WashU! Michael likes to say he plays basketball and tennis, but he hasn’t picked up a ball since the summer. Michael spends A LOT of time with the Whispers. This year he lives with two guys in the group and is planning on living with two more next year. Last year you would’ve caught Michael at the gym, but he decided over the summer he wasn’t interested anymore and so he gave up. Michael currently works on campus at the call center asking alumni riddled with student-debt to donate to the university. He would recommend the job to no one ever.
Noah Weisskopf is a Junior from Newton, Massachusetts, majoring in Political Science with minors in Legal Studies and American Culture Studies. When he’s not in rehearsal you can find him sleeping, wishing he was at Mission Taco, or playing badminton with other Whispers because that’s a weird thing we do.
Madelyne is a Sophomore from sunny San Diego! She likes Star Wars, but not as much as Kate ;).
Caroline is a Sophomore from Milwaukee Wisconsin, following the pre-med track and hoping to major in PNP (psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy) with a minor in music or linguistics. Or maybe something else because she’s super indecisive. When she isn’t singing with the Whispers, Caroline can usually be found exploring St. Louis with friends, drinking unhealthy amounts of Taro bubble tea, or listening to John Mayer.
Asia is a Sophomore from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Dominic is a Sophomore from Plano, Texas, who is on the pre-med track and is majoring in PNP. He has been conditioned to salivate at the mention of Seoul Taco.
