America's Oldest Collegiate A cappella Group
Every year, the most talented senior Yale students are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world's oldest and best known collegiate a cappella group. 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, with over a century of musical excellence.
The Whiffenpoofs have over a century of storied history. Our story begins around a small table at a tavern in New Haven.
Meet our fourteen singers, who come to the Whiffenpoofs from around the country to create a seamless ensemble.
The Whiffenpoofs have just finished their whirlwind Spring Tour, which took the group to Peru, Chile, Argentina, Florida, China, and Hong Kong.
In the coming months, the Whiffenpoofs will go on a world tour which will take us to 19 different countries. Come see us for our various public performances in each country!
