Poofs FINAL

‘POOFS RETURN TO MORNINGSIDE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY

FULLERTON, CALIF. – Back by popular demand, the Yale Whiffenpoofs brought down the house recently at Morningside retirement community in Fullerton, Calif. The “’Poofs,” as they are affectionately known by Bulldogs everywhere, transported the audience of nearly 200 residents and guests back to a gentler era with music dating from the early 20th century to the 1970’s. Dressed in full evening dress and white gloves, ten senior men from Yale performed songs ranging from Cole Porter (a member of the 1913 Whiffenpoofs) and traditional Irish tunes to Manhattan Transfer and Simon & Garfunkel.
