Yale Alley Cats to perform at St. Andrews Village
A cappella group The Yale Alley Cats will perform a concert program at St. Andrews Village in Boothbay Harbor on Saturday, May 13 at 3 p.m. Admission is free and complimentary refreshments from Village chefs will be served.
The Yale Alley Cats, a male a cappella group of 16, 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 musical repertoire is extensive and includes The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift; to standards from the American Songbook and the works of Gershwin, Ellington, and Porter.
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 (The Queen of Soul) Franklin, the set of NBC’s “The West Wing,” and on the Martha Stewart Living TV show. Locally, The Yale Alley Cats performed on the main stage at the Dresden Music Festival!
This spring they tour in Switzerland and France before heading to Washington, D.C. to record a new album. And they are appearing in the main dining room at the Village here in Boothbay Harbor. For more information about The Y ale Alley Cats, visit www.yalealleycats.com.
