Guang Ming Whitley is a founding member and former music director of the USC Sirens. She also restarted and directed the co-ed Scales of Justice at the University of Chicago Law School. After law school, she spent a year directing the co-ed community group, Underground Sound (which has since evolved into InVox).
While with the Sirens, she appeared on BOCA in both solo and/or arrangement for three years straight and has won several CARAs for her songs and arrangements. She has judged several ICCAs and the first SoJam (where she also gave a workshop), and has been both a nominator and judge for the CARAs. In 2002, she was awarded a Varsity Vocals scholarship for her contributions to collegiate a cappella.
In her non-a cappella life, Guang Ming taught at the University of Chicago, practiced intellectual property law in Los Angeles, and took on the role of Chief Operating Officer of the Whitley Household just before the birth of her daughter in 2008. Her children now number four and include a set of identical twin boys who are joyfully feral. On the side, she writes speculative fiction, serves as President of the Girls State Alumnae Foundation, volunteers with California Girls State, and sings in her church choir.
