Laura Hurtado

Since she was 8 years old, Laura has been singing nonstop that she is even majoring in it! From opera, art songs, choral music, and to musical theatre. Laura is thrilled to be a part of The Coda family to experience a different vibe aside from everything else she does. Along with being a part of an incredible bunch of talented and hilarious people, when Laura is not singing, she is in the Essence of Joy THON organization and is very passionate to help others and raise money for those in need! She is also majoring in Human Development and Family Studies since one of her aspirations is to be a therapist. Being a busy bee, she wouldn't be doing it without the support of her family and friends. Although she regrets not auditioning for Coda a lot sooner, she looks forward to spending these upcoming years singing her family away from home.

Jalen Martin

Jalen is beyond thrilled to be a part of such an AMAZING a cappella group. Music has been huge part of his life since elementary school and he is so excited to continue that journey with his new Coda family. Throughout high school, Jalen was in Jazz and Gospel choir, where he sang his little heart out and thrilled the crowd with his insane hip movements. Aside from singing, Jalen has an immense amount of love for dancing and acting. He recently was a dancer in his first professional show of Hairspray and it was one of the reasons he fell in love with theater even more. He is excited for what Coda has in store for him, and wants you to always remember to keep it Codalicious.

Lindsay Dudis

Having her dad be a former member of the Pennstate choirs, music program, and musical theater, Lindsay has been in love with music since she was born. She grew up singing with her dad while he played the piano, and always knew that music is what she wanted to do with her career. Even though she’s already in music groups such Concert Choir and Essence of Joy, CODA is something she calls home and now has a new family. Lindsay discovered CODA her freshman year when her best friend Laura introduced her to it, and ever since she’s been in love with it. This is Lindsay’s first pop group she’s been a part of at Pennstate, way different from musical theater or choir. She’s so excited to start this fun and fabulous journey with CODA. Her favorite color is pink, so CODA was perfect ;-)
