The Whiffenpoofs, Yale’s oldest all-male a cappella group, will perform on tonight’s episode of “The West Wing,” which airs at 9 p.m. on NBC.
Vikram Swamy ’04, the Whiffenpoofs’ business manager, declined to discuss details about the show’s plot but said the group performs two songs on the show. Whiffenpoofs recordings will also play in the background during the episode, Swarmy said.
The group traveled to Los Angeles to film the episode during Thanksgiving break after Aaron Sorkin, the show’s creator, called Swarmy to ask the group appear on the show. Swarmy said the Whiffenpoofs will watch the show with Yale College Dean Richard Brodhead, who invited the group to his house for the episode.
