Whiffenpoofs bring a cappella harmony to FOX 4 studio

Thanks to the hit show Glee, “tradition” may not be the first thing that comes to mind when we think of a glee club performance. But legions of adoring fans of the show, or “Gleeks,” are proving that glee clubs and a cappella are for every age, from the young to the young at heart. And these fans have The Yale Whiffenpoofs to thank for continuing this harmonious tradition.

The Yale Whiffenpoofs are the world’s oldest and best known collegiate a cappella group. The Whiffenpoofs trace their history back to when five of the Yale Glee Club’s best singers began performing together more than 100 years ago. While Glee may have brought the time-honored tradition back into the limelight of pop culture, The Whiffenpoofs group of 14 male college seniors have spent the last century traveling the world to perform hits from every decade for their fans.
