a capella group
The Spizzwinks is America's first underclassman a cappella group.
In the winter of 1913, four Yale freshmen met at Mory's Temple Bar, Yale's historic tavern, to decide on a name for their new singing group. This new group had been created to provide audiences with a light-hearted alternative to the Whiffenpoofs, Yale's older, all-senior a cappella group, who was known as much for their stodginess as for their musical excellence. Since their historic beginning at Mory's, the Spizzwinks have proudly carried on a tradition of musical excellence and camaraderie as one of America's oldest choirs.
This Performance will be in the LIPS Atrium in the Charlton Building
