Meet the Jabberwocks: Alumni Leadership

Current Alumni
Brendan Leary

Tenor 1, Class of 2019

Brendan sings most of the highest notes in the group’s arrangements and is constantly using his falsetto. This has caused him to forget what his usual singing voice sounds like. His hobbies include: playing the violin, drinking too much coffee, doing engineering problem sets, and learning random, useless facts. If you want a good laugh, don’t ask Brendan for a joke because they are usually terrible.

Sam Grady

Bass, Class of 2019

Ever since tragically forgetting the words to “God Bless America” at the Camp Westwoods talent show during the summer before 5th grade, Sam has yearned for a return to the spotlight. Like many Brown students, Sam is a weeded-out-pre-med-turned-gender-abolitionist who loves to watch niche YouTube music videos all day, everyday. Other hobbies include pretending to have read Judith Butler, stocking up on Uncrustables™ at Jo’s, and wishing they were responsible enough to own a dog.
