An a cappella performance is coming to Danbury. Before the headed out on a three month world tour, the Yale Whiffenpoofs will make a stop at the Palace Danbury Theatre tonight. Managing Director Carol Spiegel says every year, 14 senior Yale men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world's oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group.
The Whiffenpoofs were founded in 1909. Their century-old tradition is carried on each year with over two hundred performances in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Rose Bowl.
Opening the show will be the Danbury-based Martini Glass A Cappella, 13 women from the greater Danbury area. Many of their Martini Glass A Cappella members are current or alumni students from Western Connecticut State University.
Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased online, by telephone at 203 794-9944 between 1:00-5:00 PM daily, and at the box office starting onehour before showtime on the day of the event.
