Yale's Whim ‘n Rhythm at Saint David's

This past Wednesday, the all-women a cappella group, Whim ‘n Rhythm, gave a class and performance for the Saint David's School Chamber Singers.

Eleven members of the group, all seniors at Yale University, performed; brightening up what was otherwise quite a dreary, dark morning.

Our boys were all thrilled to join the Whim for a vocal warm up that got everyone singing together.

After limbering up their voices, our Chamber Singers performed Riu Riu Chiu for the ladies, with one of our boys taking the baritone solo. The Whim then performed four songs for the boys, who were riveted by their stage presence and vocal quality.

The class ended with a Q and A session.  The Whim then went upstairs to open 7th & 8th Grade Chapel with their featured song.  Again, the boys were rapt.
