    Well looks like this may be my last comment on this site.I just want to say that Friday nights concert was the best one I have ever seen,Taylor owns the stage from the momment he steps foot on it,he is just awesome in every sense of the word.I knew going in that the show would be spectacular,but nothing prepares you for how unbelievable T aylor is in person.It has been an honor to be part of Gray’s family.I will truly miss this site and everyone who helped my musical education.It has been priceless !!Most of all thanks to Gray for putting up with us and to Taylor for making a very difficult time in my life much easier to bera.I am forever greatful!!Keep on doing what you do,you are a star!!

    For those who like me had NO idea what “Whiffenpoof Song” was, here is a short explanation:

    Every year, 14 senior Yale men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world’s oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group. Founded in 1909, the “Whiffs” began as a senior quartet that met for weekly concerts at Mory’s Temple Bar, the famous Yale tavern. Today, the group has become one of Yale’s most celebrated and hallowed traditions.
