Fresh from NBC's "The Sing-Off," the Whiffenpoofs are proud to present their newest CD. With 11 new arrangements, this is the Whiffenpoofs like you've never heard them before.

Every year, 14 senior Yale men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world's oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group. Founded in 1909, the "Whiffs" began as a senior quartet that met for weekly concerts at Mory's Temple Bar, the famous Yale tavern. Today, the group has become one of Yale's most celebrated traditions.
