Nadelson 98; (bottom) Sara Jacob 99 and Suzanne Mills 99; Joanne Book 95, Taleigh Smith 98, Madeleine Bourgeois 96, ThaoMi Nguyen 95, Sara Jacob 99 and Julia Rivellino 93. Brooke Stengel 91 writes: I started the Night Owls in February 1989 with Laura Sheinkopf 92 because Bryn Mawr didnt have an a cappella group. After a campus-wide call to auditions, we started the group with 12 women. During that first semester, we performed at Oberlin, Bryn Mawr and Haverford. In addition to having the moral support of our family and friends, we also had a lot of help with organizational issues and arrangements from George Burr, father of Cindy Burr Ramsey 92 and a founding member of the Tufts Beelzebubs, an all-male group.
