Yale Whiffenpoofs to Perform Tonight at Thames Club

The Yale Whiffenpoofs will perform at the Thames Club on Friday.

NEW LONDON — The Yale Whiffenpoofs, the oldest collegiate a cappella group in the country, will be performing at the Thames Club at 290 State Street in New London on Friday, Oct. 4. Tickets include the concert and dinner at the oldest social club in Connecticut.

The Whiffenpoofs, formed in 1909, have become one of Yale’s most celebrated traditions, boasting former members such as composer Cole Porter and opera tenor John Stewart. They will be singing a mixture of old Yale tunes, jazz standards, and other hits from across the decades.

Every year, a group of rising Yale seniors are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs. The students take a year off from school to perform around the world and for the first time in its storied history, the all-male group has admitted its first female singer.

Tickets are $45 for non-members and can be reserved by calling 860-443-5504 with credit card information. Proper attire required that includes jackets for the gentlemen. Space is limited so order your tickets soon!
