The Yale Alley Cats

In true Cat fashion, as the first Yale a cappella group to tour internationally, we bring our unique brand of refined TTBB harmonies, stylistic expertise, and witty charm to destinations around the world.

“Coming off of our recent winter tour to San Diego and Hawaii, this year’s group has tight harmonies and even tighter friendships,” Cat Business manager Charles Calkins said. “We tapped six wonderful new members, who we call ‘kittens,’ in the group last September, and they’ve already incorporated themselves into the group seamlessly.”

More About the First Music Series

Minister of Music Dr. Craig Scott Symons said that the First Music & Arts Series had broadened its scope this year in an effort to appeal to a wider audience.

“We started the season in October with a performance from Stamford-based InTempo, which is a youth-development organization that provides high-quality classical and intercultural music education to children predominantly from immigrant backgrounds and from communities underrepresented in the arts,” he said.

“Concerts in November and December featured the brass section from Orchestra Lumos (formerly Stamford Symphony) and a standing-room-only crowd for our 58th annual Messiah performance. We are confident that these free concerts for all ages continue our vision of providing outstanding performances to the community.”
