Mark Dollhopf, Director of the Association of Yale Alumni and former Yale Whiffenpoof, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
“Yale’s United Way campaign is such a great cause, and this concert will really be something special,” said Danielle Gilbert, Business Manager for Whim ‘n Rhythm, Yale’s all-senior Women’s’ group. “It will be so incredible when the Yale Singing groups all do this together.”
This concert is a rare opportunity for the entire Yale and greater New Haven communities to hear such a broad sampling of songs and styles by Yale’s famed a cappella singing groups. “This promises to be a wonderful afternoon of singing for a very worthy cause,” notes Gilbert.
