Newly arrived in Wayland, Massachusetts for our summer retreat, the Whiffenpoofs of 2014 are thrilled to begin making music together! We are currently in the process of updating the site for the new year of gentlemen songsters, but check back in the next few weeks to read about our new members and our travel plans this year. We look forward to seeing you at Mory's or wherever you are around the world!
Over the years, the Whiffenpoofs have been invited to feature on a variety of television programs, including The West Wing, Saturday Night Live, Jeopardy!, Gilmore Girls, and The Sing-Off.
Now, we are honored to announce that the popular and award-winning show Glee will join this list! Please tune in on May 9th at 9pm on Fox to watch the Whiffenpoofs of 2013 make a cameo appearance on the season finale of Glee!
You can catch the rest of the song we sing in the episode – in addition to a number of other wonderful tracks – on our CD, entitled Flight of the Penguins, which you can now pre-order here. The CD features the entirety of the Whiffenpoofs of 2013 and will be shipped to you within a few weeks.
Last but not least, don't miss your last chance see the Whiffs live in the United States before they begin their tour of the world. On May 12 in New York City at 5:00pm, The Whiffs will perform at Unitarian Church of All Souls (1157 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY). Tickets can be found here. We hope to see you there!
