The Spizzwinks and the New Blue, a cappella groups from Yale, will perform in concert at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, Sunday, Feb. 3, at 1 pm.
The Spizzwinks, formed at Yale in 2014, return to Westchester after performing in Scarsdale in 2013 and 2015. The group plans to sing in Iceland, Seattle and China this coming spring and summer.
The New Blue is Yale's oldest female a cappella group, formed in 1969, the year Yale's undergraduate population included women for the first time. Laura Clapp '21 of Scarsdale sings with New Blue.
In 2018, the Whiffenpoofs and Red, Hot & Blue performed in separate concerts in Rye.
YWAA will host the concert. Details will follow.
Yale psychology professor Laurie Santos will present a lecture to Yale alumni and friends in Chappaqua. Details will follow. Santos is best known for having taught arguably the most popular course ever among Yale undergraduates, "Psychology and the Good Life," when over 1,200 students enrolled last spring.
The course is also known as the "Happiness" course and is labelled "The Science of Well-Being" in an online adaptation of the same.
Santos also acts as Head of Silliman College at Yale.
