The Yale Whiffenpoofs in Concert!
Wednesday, June 27 at 7:30 PM
ALIF Villa Garden, ALC Fes, 28 Rue Mohammed Diouri, Fes Ville Nouvelle
Every year, 14 senior Yale University men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world’s oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group. Founded in 1909, the “Whiffs” began as a senior quartet that met for weekly concerts at Mory’s Temple Bar, the famous Yale tavern. Today, the group has become one of Yale’s most celebrated traditions, with a diverse and evolving repertoire ranging from traditional Yale standards to popular songs from every decade.
Cole Porter was one of the original members of the group, and the “Whiffs” continue to sing some of his songs, such as “Too Darn Hot” and “Night and Day.”
Each year, 14 Yale seniors take the year off from their studies to travel the world, performing this year in 21 countries on six continents. We are thrilled and honored that they are coming to give a concert at ALC-Fes!
This concert, organized by the ALC-ALIF Music Club, is free and open to the general public.
The performance will be in the garden of the ALIF Villa Student Residence, across the street from the American Language Center:
