Nicole Watson – Managing Director
Nicole is a Junior double majoring in Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature & English Literature with the goal of one day becoming an English Professor. Being from the south, Nicole is hesitantly optimistic of the impending winters that she will face over the next two years, but she learned her lesson last winter and will do her best to not get hypothermia again. Nicole loves singing with the Enchantments and is very glad to have joined the group. Along with the enjoyment of singing in an a cappella group, she loves the family of women she has found in these girls and hopes to keep these friendships for years to come. One fun fact about her is that out of the twelve piercings she has, she has done four of them herself, but don’t ask her to do one on you as she is mysophobic. (Google is your friend here) She cannot wait to spend another year with these girls and take on ICCA again!
Theoni Kolas – Marketing Director
Theoni is a Senior majoring in Family Social Science with a concentration in Family Therapy and a minor in Family Violence Prevention. She hopes to eventually own her own private practice after getting her Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy. Theoni has always been very involved in music. She plays both guitar and piano and continues to write her own music, which she hopes to record in some form one day. Some fun facts about Theoni: she’s 100% Greek (go figure), her favorite food is steak, and her high school yearbook quote was “Follow your dreams, but also follow @theoni.kolas on Instagram”…which is still true. She loves being in The Enchantments because she loves getting to sing with her best friends, who also happen to be such talented individuals.
Erin Williams – Business Director

Marlee Schlegel – Music Director
Marlee is a senior majoring in Mass Communication with a minor in Sociology of Law, Criminology, and Deviance.She came all the way to Minnesota from the distant land of central Wisconsin to study and immerse herself in a slightly more western midwest culture. When she’s not singing with the Enchantments, you can find her watching Park and Rec for the 80th time, out exploring the vast array of coffee shops around the Twin Cities, or hard at work on one of her many, many projects she has going at any given time. Most recently she has been sanding, staining, and painting a lot of old furniture. She encourages you to follow her on Twitter @MarleeSchlegel because she is funny. Sometimes. Much love to Justin.

Her dream job would be working for a transportation department designing highway systems and roads. However, music always has been and always will be a deeply important part of her life. She is honored to be a part of the Enchantments so that their music can be shared with all — like on their new EP titled “HEX#7a0017” (the perfect shade of maroon, Google it), available on Apple Music and Spotify!

She claims that her greatest achievement is knowing every word to every single One Direction song. Gabi loves being an Enchantment and is thankful for the community that comes with it.

Bella is ambidextrous, loves to cook, and loves online shopping without actually buying anything. She is also a diehard Target patron and will gladly help you find a bubbler when you need one. She loves the Enchantments. It’s a group that allows everyone to be an individual with the full love and support of 15 other girls. If you would like to hear how awesome the Enchantments are, Bella would love it if you would listen to their EP, “HEX#7a0019”, on all major streaming services!
Emily is a sophomore majoring in Psychology and minoring in Nutrition and Spanish.
