Whiffenpoofs of Yale performing at Foothill

Pleasanton native among 14 performers in traveling a cappella act

The country's oldest collegiate a cappella group, the Whiffenpoofs of Yale, will bring their talents to Foothill High School this Sunday (Jan. 19) as part of their world tour.

Each year, a group of top Yale University seniors are chosen to perform more than 200 concerts across six continents, singing a mix of old Yale tunes, jazz standards and other hits. Among the 14 performers this year is Pleasanton native Arthur Hwang, a 2016 graduate of Foothill and former intern at the Pleasanton Weekly.

The Whiffenpoofs' show at Foothill will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday; they are also performing at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Oakland at 7 p.m. that night. For tickets or more information, visit whiffs.ticketbud.com/pleasanton2020.
