Live in Concert This Spring

An upcoming concert for both groups is scheduled in Manhattan, April 13. The Whiffenpoofs will sing in Rye, April 15.
The Whiffenpoofs and Whim 'n Rhythm, Yale's senior singing groups on a last fling of rounds of singing before the school year ends (and before they embark on summer tours), will be in concert in the New York area in April.

The two groups will sing together at the Brick Church (62 East 92nd Street) in New York City Friday, April 13 at 8 pm in a concert supported by the Whiffenpoofs of '65. (Tickets are available at TicketBud.) They will also sing at a Commencement Concert at Yale, May 20. 

The Whiffenpoofs '18 include Baritone Danny Keller '18, a native of Rye and computer science major.  This year's business manager and announcer in the group, Keller returns home with fellow Whiffs when the group sings at Rye Presbyterian Church (882 Boston Post Road), Sunday, Apr. 15 at 3 pm. Tickets are available at the door.

Typical for the group, as it travels across the country and world, the Whiffs have already had concerts in Texas, California, Washington State and Maryland in 2018. 

Both the Whiffenpoofs and Whim 'n Rhythm made news earlier this year when they announced they will permit candidates of either sex to audition for their respective groups.  The Whiffs recently announced its first female participant, Sofia Campoamor '19, who will join the Whiffs next year after singing with Mixed Company of Yale.
