That's right, ladies and gentlemen. After months and months of tireless work, endless tinkering, ingenuity, and plenty of pluck, we've developed a new genre of music. We call it A Cappella.
Now you can hear our first foray into this most exotic and instrument-less world. With 11 new arrangements, Brazilian percussion and a spaceship, here is our newest album, The Invention of A Cappella and Other Modest Accomplishments.
For the first time in Whiffenpoof history, you can purchase the album as a digital download if you prefer that to a physical disc (you can also get them both!). Either way, visit our store to get yours!
