Thursday, March 13 from 6:30 to 7:15 pm, in the John F. Armstrong Wing at the Blake Library, 2351 SE Monterey Rd, Stuart, Yale University’s Whim n’ Rhythm a cappella group will be performing, in association with the Journey Stories Music Series. This all-female group, consisting of 14 members, represents the best and most experienced female musicians of the senior class. This performance is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcomed.

As of 1981, Yale’s vibrant a cappella scene featured a dozen underclassman groups of every variety. However, seven senior women felt that a key part of their musical experience was missing – a senior group. These seven seniors founded Whim n’ Rhythm as an answer to the decades-old tradition of The Whiffenpoofs. After over 30 years, Whim has continued to grow into a full-force presence on Yale’s campus and on both the national and international stages. The group tours domestically and in the greater New England area yearly, visiting locations from New York and Los Angeles to Hong Kong and Cairo, and recently founded a full-fledged Alumnae Board to help build the group’s legacy from beyond Yale’s campus.

For more information, call (772) 221-1403, pick up a Library Connection at any library location, or visit the library website at www.library.martin.fl.us.
