High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc. is pleased to present the world’s oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group, the Yale Whiffenpoofs, in concert on Sunday, Jan. 20, at 1:30 p.m. at the First Church of Christ in Old Saybrook.
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 and hallowed traditions, carrying on a century of musical excellence and professional showmanship at Yale, across America and around the world.
Proceeds from this concert will benefit the programs and participants of High Hopes Therapeutic Riding.
Ticket prices for the concert are $25 for adults and $12 for children and students. Following the concert, a special full tea reception with the Whiffenpoofs will be held at the church. Tickets to attend both the concert and the reception are $50 for adults and $20 for children and students. Space is limited and tickets should be purchased in advance.
