  • Lora Rinaldi

    Lora joined the Callbaxx in spring 2014, and graduated in 2016 with a degree in Environmental Engineering. While Lora plays it cool and reserved most of the time, we quickly learned that she's a pro-comedian who can make the whole group dying of laughter with her quick wit. In her spare time, she likes to dazzle people with her oboe playing and work on bridges...but not at the same time... While in the group, Lora soloed in Dance With Me Tonight, and learned how to beatbox in her last semester!
  • Maggie O'Keefe

    Maggie joined the Callbaxx in Fall 2015. She hails from the New York Metro area, and is studying in the school of Art, Architecture, and Urban Planning. Maggie has been interested in music ever since she was a child, from songwriting to jamming on an outrageous number of instruments including violin, banjo, ukulele, and the accordion. Maggie is on the track and field team and enjoys taking nature walks.
  • Izzy Rothstein

    Izzy hails from East Taghkanic, NY, and joined The CallbaXX in the fall of 2012. Izzy graduated in December 2015 with a degree in HBHS. The Callbaxx will miss this incredible soloist and prolific arranger! Izzy is now pursuing a career in non-profit advocacy for women and gender minorities. Aside from work and musical activities, Iz can be found cooking up a mean stir-fry, or paying a weird amount of attention to her plants.
  • Gabriela Walters

    Gabi joined The CallbaXX her freshman Fall in 2011 and has held positions of President, Business Manager, Secretary, Co-Treasurer, and Choreography.

  • Joanie Kim

She graduated from the CallbaXX and Cornell University in May 2015, and is now living and working in Phang Nga, Thailand as a secondary school teacher. Lisa is teaching science and English full time in the rural town, and gets many requests to sing from her cute students!! In her free time, she can be found cruising the streets of Phang Nga, trying in vain to learn Thai pop songs, and exploring the natural wildlife around the area (which is totally awesome, by the way). If you are ever in Thailand, drop her an email at lsl82@cornell.edu.

  • Tina Shah

    Tina's foray into acappella was not only spectacular, it was the 2nd best decision of her college career. Her #1 best decision was joining the CallbaXX. The group was her home and her family during her years at Cornell. She filled such positions as Business Manager and Secretary, and loved doing things for the group. Her weirdness and inner (and outer - let's be real here) geek found its home in CallbaXX rehearsals and leaving the fantastic group was one of the saddest parts of graduating.
  • Amy Nesheim

    Amy joined The CallbaXX in 2011 and graduated in 2014. During her time in the group, she held the positions of Social Chair, Secretary, ACAC Representative, Business Manager, Treasurer, and President. She also arranged quite a few songs, including Bust Your Windows and I Won't Give Up. Amy is now in law school studying to serve the public interest and save the world.

  • Katherine Walden

    Katherine joined in 2011 and left the CallbaXX after graduating in 2014. However, she isn't gone for good since she will be attending Cornell Vet School until 2018 and will vie for the spot of "#1 CallbaXX Superfan". While in the group she was music director for 2 semesters and arranged "Halo" and "Kiss Kiss", the first CallbaXX song with all-original lyrics. And wanna know something crazy? She is in the same Vet School class as another CallbaXX alum, Natasja Lavin! Coincidence? I'm not so sure... :)
  • Rubia Gaissler

    Rubia joined the CallbaXX in the Spring of 2013 and graduated in the fall. She. Is. Awesome. This girl was the first soloist for Kiss Kiss, which is a sure favorite in years to come, and she was also the best PR and Social Chair ever. She is going to be defending her PhD in Brazil very soon. Go Rubia!!
