Yale Alley Cats to Perform at Cranford HS

The Yale Alley Cats

The Yale Alley Cats a cappella group will perform a concert program at Cranford High School on Saturday April 1, 2017 at 2:00pm as part of their spring concert tour.  Admission is $5 and will support the Cranford High School choral program.  The concert will also feature the Cranford High School Women’s Ensemble and Noteworthy Gentlemen.  Cranford High School alumnus and 2016 valedictorian, Hale Jaeger is a member of the Yale Alley Cats.

The Yale Alley Cats, a sixteen-person all-male a cappella group, has been spreading music around the world since 1943. Their repertoire has grown from its jazz roots to include Motown, pop, classical, and many other genres. Their diverse repertoire of songs and acknowledged musical excellence allow them to perform at a multitude of venues, including jazz clubs, embassies, elementary schools, and the hallowed halls of Yale University. Their professional yet uplifting style brings smiles to people from all walks of life. Consequently, they have performed for former President Bill Clinton, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden, Aretha Franklin, the set of NBC’s “The West Wing”, the Martha Stewart Living television program, and the main stage at the Dresden Music Festival.  Highlights of this season include performances in San Francisco, Washington DC, Geneva, and Paris. This summer the group will embark upon an Asian tour, featuring stops in Hong Kong and Seoul.

Traditionally, the Alley Cats visit the hometown of each new member and Cranford High School is proud to host 2016 valedictorian, Hale Jaeger.  Hale was a member of the Concert Choir, Noteworthy Gentlemen, theater productions, and the swim and track teams.  Now a freshman at Yale, Hale spends most of his time with the Alley Cats but is also starting a new student organization, TRAGEDY.

The Yale Alley Cats a cappella performance is Saturday, April 1 at 2:00pm in the Cranford High School auditorium.  Admission is $5 and all are welcome.
