About Us

The Singing Group Council is a group of four dedicated senior Co-Chairs who work with the Yale administration and SGC affiliated groups to oversee the rush process. Every year the council consists of at least one co-chair from each of Yale's all-senior a cappella groups, the Whiffenpoofs, and Whim 'n Rhythm, and two co-chairs who have been members of other SGC affiliated groups.

In the spring preceding fall rush we coordinate with the administration to set the rush calendar and date for the Woolsey Jam. We revise or amend the rush rules and meet with representatives of all the groups to discuss any changes and finalize the rush calendar. During the fall, we work to assure that the rush process runs as smoothly as possible, from emceeing the Woolsey and Dwight jams to authorizing the start of tap night, being an important resource for group members and rushees in between.

Later in the academic year we coordinate with the Yale Club of New York to organize its annual a cappella concert dinner, and again with the Yale administration for the large music concert during the Bulldog Days Bazaar for pre-freshmen and their families. We also serve as a liaison for the outside world seeking to get in touch with the world of Yale a cappella. We can be contacted at sgcchairlist@panlists.yale.edu.
