Visiting troupe sing for supper in Queenstown


A visiting troupe of unaccompanied singers on tour from the United States have sung for their supper outside a Queenstown burger joint. 

The 13 members of Yale University’s Whiffenpoofs – selected for a world singing tour as part of an annual tradition at the US college – put on an impromptu performance for half an hour on the footpath outside Fergburger earlier this month. 

The 7pm a cappella show went down a treat with passersby and customers. 

Fergburger operations manager Stephen Bradley says families really enjoyed it. 

“Kids and families formed a front row there for a while. It was a bit of fun.” 

Bradley says Fergburger served up each member with a free burger and beer for their trouble. 

Queenstown is the last stop on their international tour before they head back to Yale and their studies.
