The Whiffenpoofs 

Borah High School, Monday, Oct. 22

In February, the Yale University acapella group The Whiffenpoofs broke with over 100 years of tradition to induct its first woman, Sofia Campoamor, who sings first tenor. Though Campoamor's inclusion was groundbreaking, attendees of The Whiffs' concert at Borah High School on Monday, Oct. 22, will see that although the faces in the group have changed, its top-notch sound has not. Claiming the title of the nation's oldest collegiate a cappella group (the inaugural Whiffenpoofs, then a quartet, met and sang at the renowned Mory's Temple Bar in 1909), this year's Whiffs are a group of 14 Yale seniors, known, as those before them, for their flawless harmonies, daunting international touring schedule and boundless charm. On Monday, the group will perform a selection of classics, sans instruments, that are sure to blow back the hair of even the most fastidious of music buffs.
