With fifteen a capella groups, including the 100 year-old ensemble the Whiffenpoofs, it’s an understatement to say a capella is big at Yale University.
“It’s fervent at Yale,” Ian Miller said. He’s the music director for one of those fifteen groups, Shades of Yale, and a St. Louisan.
“It’s almost like sports at some other university,” Shades of Yale Tour Manager Hannah Sears added. “It seems like every other person you meet is somehow involved.”
