Anyka Chan

Class of '22  |  Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars

Anyka Chan is a senior in the Engineering school, originally from the California Bay Area. She is studying Computer Science with minors in Electrical Engineering and Engineering Entrepreneurship. Her passions are Netflix, coding, and Karaoke, especially if she's allowed to sing Taylor Swift or Disney songs. Her favorite Disney movie is the Lion King, but Mulan and Princess and the Frog are up there. She has always loved singing, especially in choirs/groups, and loves doing so at Penn with Disney A Cappella! [and yes, she did pick her character because Anyka sounds like Anakin]

Analyn Sil

Class of '22  |  Violet, The Incredibles

Analyn is a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences studying neuroscience. When she’s not binging kdramas to “study” for Korean 101, baking to P!ATD at 1am, or yelling about how Treasure Planet deserves more recognition, she’s stressing! Her favorite Disney movies are Treasure Planet, Moana, and Raya and the Last Dragon. She’s loved her time in Disney A Cappella, and can’t wait to perform more!

Brian Vu

Class of '22  |  Hei Hei, Moana

Brian is a senior from Austin, Texas, studying Biology with minors in Asian American Studies and Chemistry. When he’s not singing with his tenors at rehearsal, you can find Brian sipping on some tea while binging YouTube, unironically scrolling through TikToks, or studying for his many tests (rip pre-med). Brian’s bubbly and slightly quirky personality finds its home at Disney A Cappella, where he can join his fellow Disney mates in spreading joy and happiness around campus. Growing up, Brian was a Disney fanatic, with some of his favorite films being Frozen and Moana. As a member of Disney A Cappella, he is excited to see how far his passion for Disney will take him throughout his undergraduate career.

When she is not running to and from clinicals, she can be found laughing with friends or curled up with a good book. Her favorite Disney movie is the Little Mermaid, but she has nothing bad to say about any Disney movie she has seen. She loves singing, especially with such a great group of people, and she is so excited to start her time with Disney A Capella!

He is beyond excited to become part of a group as wholesome and fun as Disney, and can’t wait to continue singing classic bops with so many talented people!

When he isn’t studying at VP or Stammons, he is probably playing foosball in NCHW with his roommates, scrolling through TikTok, or laughing with his friends. His favorite Disney movie is Tangled because of the majestic scene with the sky lanterns! And Pascal, of course. He loves to sing and dance and can’t wait to be part of the Disney community!
