Matt is an alumnus of the prestigious Yale Spizzwinks and currently serves as WoM’s Business Manager. When he’s not singing tasty riffs on-stage, you can find him arranging some of WoM’s favorite jams like “Go Your Own Way” or crushing the competition in a game of laser tag. Oh, and if you want to have Hamilton sing-along, he’s totally down.
Dream duet partner: Anyone in the Hamilton cast!

Eric Null | Williston, VT | Bass
Eric, the current president of WoM, hails from the state with the best maple syrup and cheese, and that is a hill he will die on. He is a classically-trained musician (clarinet, piano) but is now a lawyer. And he has had a lifelong appreciation for a cappella (he sang in his high school’s all-male a cappella group). By day, Eric is trying to save the internet. By night he tries to destroy it (with memes and other questionable content). In between, you can probably catch him at a local karaoke bar.
Dream duet partner: Andrew Rannells

Eleanor is a Philadelphia native, having sang a cappella with her high school “team” and with UPenn’s Off The Beat in college. Her favorite spots to sing are on a beach or around a bonfire with her cousins. Eleanor is currently studying for a Master’s in Public Policy with a focus on education at GWU. She recently completed her Teach for America service in Charlotte, NC, as a high school Spanish teacher – and yes she obviously made a verb conjugation song out of Despacíto for her students to study with. Feel free to ask her about that time she sang for Joe Biden or anything to do with the latest fitness crazes.
