Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors at the door. You can get tickets in advance for $12 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.
Every year, 14 senior Yale men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world's oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group, according to the website.
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.
And you hear them Friday right here in Barrington.
