MORE ABOUT THE YALE WHIFFENPOOFS

Every year, 14 senior Yale students 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 over a century of musical excellence. Singing a mixture of old Yale tunes, jazz standards, and other hits from across the decades, the Whiffenpoofs perform more than 200 concerts every year. 

Their characteristic white tie and tails, paired with their enthusiasm and humor, have become iconic for audiences all around the United States and across the world. Past Whiffenpoof performance venues include Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the White House, the Rose Bowl, and Lincoln Center. The Whiffenpoofs have reached a television audience of more than 175 million in appearances in 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.

The Whiffenpoofs have sung for Presidents Obama, Bush (41 and 43), Clinton, and Reagan and have toured over twenty countries on six continents almost every year for the last several years. Nonetheless, the Whiffs always feel most at home at Yale on their perennial Monday night engagement at Mory's, where they close each night with the historic Whiffenpoof Song, (which has since been covered by artists like Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, and Rudy Vallee).
