Whiffenpoofs in Concert

Each year, 14 senior Yale men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world’s best known a cappella group. Made famous by their signature “Whiffenpoof Song,” (which has since been covered by artists like Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, and Rudy Vallee), the ‘Whiffs’ carry forward their century-old tradition each year with over two hundred performances in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Broadway’s Lincoln Center, and the Rose Bowl. They have been featured on television shows such as NBC’s The Sing Off, The West Wing, The Today Show, 60 Minutes, Gilmore Girls, Jeopardy!, Saturday Night Live, and most recently on the Season 4 finale of the hit television show Glee. Last year, the Whiffenpoofs sang for President Obama at the White House and toured to over twenty-five countries on six continents.
