Krasnoff Theater @ Tilles Center

The Whiffenpoofs, the world’s oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group, are excited to announce a concert at Tilles Center. 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. Every year,14 rising Yale seniors are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs and take the year off of school to tour and perform.

The Whiffenpoofs sing a diverse repertoire of vocal jazz, folk, pop, and Broadway hits from across the decades, and perform more than two hundred concerts each year. The Whiffs have sung for Presidents Obama, W. and H.W. Bush, Clinton, and Reagan and performed in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Broadway’s Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center. in recent years, we have been featured on television shows such as “The Sing Off”, “The West Wing” and “Glee.”

Tickets available through this link ONLY. Tickets not available through the Tilles Center box office.
