Join us for an unforgettable evening of music as Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden proudly presents the renowned Yale Whiffenpoofs! Founded in 1909, the Whiffenpoofs are the world’s oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group, consisting of 14 senior Yale students selected each year. From their humble beginnings as a senior quartet at Mory’s Temple Bar, the Whiffenpoofs have evolved into one of Yale’s most celebrated traditions, captivating audiences with their impeccable harmonies and timeless repertoire.

Singing a mixture of old Yale tunes, jazz standards, and other hits from across the decades, the Whiffenpoofs perform more than 200 concerts each year. Their characteristic white tie and tails, paired with their enthusiasm and humor, have become iconic for audiences all around the United States and across the world.

Recent Whiffenpoof performance venues include Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the White House, the Rose Bowl, and Lincoln Center. The Whiffenpoofs have reached a television audience of more than 175 million via appearances in NBC’s The Sing-Off, The West Wing, The Today Show, 60 Minutes, Gilmore Girls, Jeopardy!, Saturday Night Live, and most recently the Season 4 finale of the hit television show Glee.

The Whiffenpoofs have sung for multiple sitting Presidents of the United States and have toured over twenty countries on six continents almost every year for the last several years. Nonetheless, the Whiffs always feel most at home at Yale on their perennial Monday night engagement at Mory’s, where they close each night with the historic Whiffenpoof Song, covered by artists among the likes of Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, and Rudy Vallee:

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…
