      Eighty-nine years of tradition stand behind the Yale Whiffenpoofs, the
      oldest collegiate a cappella group in America. Some of the most
      important figures in American music have been associated with the
      Whiffenpoofs. Cole Porter, Yale class of 1913, was a Whiffenpoof. Ella
      Fitzgerald was made an honorary member of the group at a 1979 concert,
      and Louis Armstrong recorded his own original version of the
      Whiffenpoof song.

      Each year, fourteen Yale seniors, selected for their outstanding vocal
      ability, are chosen to continue the Whiffenpoof tradition. After
      graduation, the Whiffenpoofs embark on their World Tour. The
      Peninsula concert will be their last concert in the U.S. before they
      go to Tokyo as the first leg of their international tour.

      Concert is 8pm, Monday, June 1 at the First Congregational Church in
      Palo Alto at the intersection of Embarcadero Road and Louis Road.

      Admission is $12 for general admission and $8 for students and seniors.
      Pay at the door.
