Modessa Jacobs, President
Jacobs is a 2L soprano from Seattle, WA. She has lived in five states
and two countries but still knows that Seattle is the best city in the
entire world. Scales of Justice is the best and only vocal group that
she is been in. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in
2006, where she studied German, European History and Jewish Studies.
Her other interests include photography and Yiddish literature.
Wen Bu, Treasurer
Wen is a 3L from Marietta, GA, who isn't quite sure what her voice part
is anymore. In addition to singing, she knits and auditions for every
theater production she can find and fit into her schedule. Her official
background is in chemistry and political science, which she studied as
an undergraduate at Furman University (class of 2005).
David Kargman, Business Manager
is a 3L tenor from Chicago, IL. A theatre major at Northwestern
University, David has been singing and performing as long as he can
remember and is thrilled to be able to continue while at law school.
When he isn't singing or studying, he can be found preaching about the
wonders of the windy city, watching too many cartoons for someone his
age, or challenging someone to a game of Risk unaware that it is only a
game and will not, in fact, make him ruler of the world.
Jesse Grauman, Music Director
Jesse is a 3L bass from New York, NY. He graduated from Yale in 2000
and spent the past four years working in Washington, DC in the U.S.
Senate. Jesse has been in a series of various choral and a cappella
groups dating back to third grade or so. The highlight of his
performance career was probably playing Lumiere in an all-Hebrew
production of "Beauty and the Beast" in high school -- because really,
once you sing "Be our Guest" in Hebrew, with a French accent, while
wearing gold lipstick and paper-mache candlesticks on your arms, you
can't really top that. In his spare time, Jesse rides his bike and
lives and dies by the fortunes of the New York Mets.
Lerer is a 1L from Long Island. He sang showtunes for four years
at Harvard College as a tenor before he saw the light and realized he
would really have much more fun singing endless low G's for measures at
a time. Sometimes, he also studied Social Studies. Noam
also likes history, classics, science fiction, games, and wandering
is a 1L from Chicago. She attended Dartmouth College and
graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Snowmanology.
She was the Business Manager for and sang with the Dartmouth Glee
Club, as well as planning Glee Club Spring Break Trip 2007. She
enjoys dogs and low notes. One day she will ensure that the
Harvard Coop will stock dog collars, and not just pet-neutral collars
that are secretly only an appropriate width for cats.
Only) Adam is not an L at all. He is a G2, or, in other words, a
second year graduate student at GSAS. He is currently pursuing a
PhD in Italian Studies with a secondary field in Visual and Film
Studies. Scales is his first experience singing with a group,
unless you count occasional drunken karaoke companions. He is a
tenor. Except when he is a bass. If he looks lost, please
tell him what measure he is on.
(Fall Only) Adam
is a 1L from Worthington, Ohio. He attended The Ohio State
University, where he studied mathematics and economics. While at
Ohio State, Adam also sang in the Men's Glee Club. Outside of music,
Adam's interests include backpacking and playing cards.
1L alto from Duluth, MN, Siders is fiercely proud of her home state and
its cold winters, good-hearted people and funny accents. She's
spent the past four years in Boston, studying biological anthropology
at Harvard College. Her spare time is spent reading science
fiction, playing rugby for Beantown, or trying to find a bar showing a
Daren Stanaway, Music Director (Spring Only)
from Billings, Montana, Daren is a 1L soprano who can't get enough
Harvard a cappella; she spent the last four years singing with the
Fallen Angels at Harvard College, where she studied Sociology and
Government, before joining the Scales of Justice at Harvard Law.
In her (essentially nonexistent) free time, Daren enjoys dancing,
running, skiing, and, of course, singing!
Ryan is a 2L from most areas of the US. He graduated from
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Computer Systems
Engineering and then came to law school for some reason. His
nonmusical insterests include creating and playing games (digital and
physical), inventing programming languages, and arguing about anything
with the word "theory" in it.
is a 1L who claims she's from Taiwan. A citizen of the world,
Jane has lived in Mainland China, Belgium, Canada, the United States,
Thailand and Taiwan--not necessarily in that order. She was a
double major in psychology and human biology at the University of
Toronto. She also likes bubble tea, karaoke, dancing in her room,
and playing . . . just playing in general.
