The Yale Club of the Suncoast is honored to welcome “The Whiffenpoofs”, Yale’s premier a cappella singing group on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.
The group, often referred to as “The Whiffs”, was established at Yale in 1909 and is the oldest such group in the United States. The line up changes each year and Cole Porter is its best known alumnus. He sang in the 1913 line-up and the group often sings Cole Porter songs in tribute. The group travels extensively during the school year and takes a three month world tour during the summer. Historically an all male singing group, that tradition was ended when the group accepted its first female member, Sofia Campoamor, in November 2018.
