The Whiffenpoofs

RICHARD: I’m going to be going back there next week. There’s going to be a little reunion of the Whiffenpoofs … It’s an a cappella singing group I belonged to at Yale.

The Whiffenpoofs are a real a capella singing group at Yale University. Established in 1909, it is the oldest such group in the US. The line-up is completely replaced each year, and is always composed of rising seniors, who may take a year’s absence in order to go on tour nationally and internationally. Cole Porter is their most famous alumnus.
