Yale Whiffenpoofs Concert

Every year, 14 senior Yale men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs. Founded in 1909, the a capella group has become a Yale tradition.

The Whiffenpoofs will be performing two public concerts in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 22-23. Three current Whiffenpoofs call the D.C. area home — Andy Berry, Michael Protacio, and Reuben Hendler — and they are excited to bring the group home.

Their first performance will take place:
Friday, February 22, 8 p.m.
Saint Luke Lutheran Church
9100 Colesville Road, Silver Spring, Maryland
Tickets: $25 for adults, $15 for students and children under 18
Tickets available online

Their second performance will take place:
Saturday, February 23, 7:30 p.m.
The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer
6201 Dunrobbin Drive, Bethesda, MD 20816
Tickets: $20 for adults, $10 for students and children under 18
