An engaging variety show presented in the style of a radio program, comprising comedy and music performed by a talented ensemble and a special guest artist. At the heart of each show will be highlights of current and upcoming cultural offerings.
Our Special guest artist for this show will be the Whiffenpoofs. The Whiffenpoofs are a world renowned male singing group from Yale University. Each year fourteen of the finest male singers from Yale’s senior class are chosen to be members of this, the world’s oldest and best known male a cappella ensemble. Over 100 years after the group’s founding in 1909, the Whiffenpoofs continue their proud tradition of outstanding musicianship and exceptional entertainment. Each year, the “Whiffs” perform over 200 concerts worldwide. This year, their tour included Carnegie Hall, the White House, the Sun Valley Jazz Jamboree, and now The Flagpole Radio Café. Their diverse repertoire, which comprises everything from Yale songs to contemporary favorites, guarantees a dynamic performance for any audience.
