Yale Alley Cats to perform in Vail Saturday

Special to the DailyMembers of the Yale University Alley Cats will perform at the Four Seasons Resort in Vail on Saturday.

VAIL, Colorado – The Vail Symposium presents the unaccompanied voices of the Yale University Alley Cats. The group will perform at the Four Seasons Resort in Vail on Saturday at 5 p.m.

“The Vail Symposium has been providing the Vail Valley with programs that are thought-provoking, relevant and diverse for 40 years,” said Vail Symposium Director Liana Moore. “This performance reflects that mission as part of our arts and culture series.”

Yale’s nationally renowned collegiate a cappella group has been spreading music around the world since 1943. Their diverse repertoire includes signature jazz, pop and classical arrangements. The quality of the arrangements, all written by former and current Cats, sets the group apart. Their diverse songlist and musical excellence allow them to perform at a host of different venues, from jazz clubs to embassies, from the set of TV’s “The West Wing” to the main stage at the Dresden Music Festival, from the beaches of Hawaii to Martha Stewart Living, from a square filled with hundreds of Parisians to Battell Chapel packed with hordes of screaming Yalies.

The Vail Symposium has been working with various groups within the Yale University community to develop a speaker partnership. Those early efforts have resulted in the presentation of the Yale Alley Cats.

“We are subsequently working to bring speakers from the Yale World Fellows Program and Yale University’s signature international leadership training program,” Moore said.

Yale welcomed the first class of World Fellows to New Haven in the fall of 2002, and now boasts more than 100 emerging leaders worldwide. These include a diversity of committed innovators, from top government officials and members of parliament to on-the-ground activists and investigative journalists to ground-breaking artists and next-generation business executives. Stay tuned for further developments coming summer 2011.

The Alley Cats performance is free. For more information visit http://www.vailsymposium.org or call 970-476-0954.
