Whiffs to sing with ‘Wicked’ star

The Whiffenpoofs will soon have yet another brush with fame. After getting kudos from Ben Folds and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger on NBC’s “The Sing-Off” and singing at Lincoln Center last weekend, the Whiffenpoofs will perform alongside actress and singer Idina Menzel in a benefit concert this March.

The benefit, co-hosted by the Association of Yale Alumni, the Yale Club of Southern California and Eli’s Mishpucha: Yale’s Jewish Alumni Group, will feature Menzel and the Whiffenpoofs in concert, with actor Josh Malina ’88 presiding as master of ceremonies. Proceeds from the concert will go to P.S. ARTS, a non-profit group that seeks to bring arts education to public schools.

For those willing to make the trip to Santa Monica, tickets are $100 and $125, and the show will take place March 11 at 8 pm.
