YALE UNIVERSITY WHIFFENPOOFS

 

Every year, 14 senior Yale men 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 and hallowed traditions and has added a female vocalist. The Whiffenpoofs repertoire ranges from traditional college songs to original compositions to hits from every decade. The group combines a unique blend of musicianship, choreography, and showmanship to create a performance suitable for all audiences. Made famous by the signature “Whiffenpoof Song” (which has been covered by artists like Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, and Rudy Vallee), The Whiffs have performed for generations at a number of venues, including New York’s Lincoln Center, the White House, the Salt Lake Tabernacle, Oakland Coliseum, Carnegie Hall and the Rose Bowl. The group has appeared on such television shows as Jeopardy!, The Today Show, Saturday Night Live, 60 Minutes, Gilmore Girls, The West Wing, and Glee.

The 2019 Yale Wiffenpoofs

The Whiffenpoof Song

To the tables down at Mory’s, to the place where Louis dwells
to the dear old Temple Bar we love so well
sing the Whiffenpoofs assembled, with their glasses raised on high
and the magic of their singing casts its spell
