Yale Spizzwinks(?) Visit

As part of our Winter Celebration of Art and Music, last week The Yale Spizzwinks(?), America's oldest undergraduate a cappella group, performed for our fourth, fifth and sixth graders.

They also gave a Master Class for the Chamber Singers earlier in the morning. These energetic young men wowed our boys with their wonderful singing, their intricate harmonies, and especially their hilarious stories. They told one famous story about their rivals, the men from Harvard, that the boys all loved. As Music Chair Jeff Moore observed, "The Spizzwinks(?) showed great poise, fantastic performance skills, and lovely musicality that our boys will long remember. It was a delightful performance that we hope to repeat again next year. "
