It's only fitting that, when directing ticketholders to their seats for a centennial concert on January 31, the Whiffenpoofs lost their way. Computer glitches resulted in double-booked seats, unreceived tickets, and a delay of more than half an hour at the sold-out Woolsey Hall event. But when the show finally started, the audience was all smiles. Three Whiffenpoof alumni groups performed before the 2009 Whiffs made their entrance, and more than 100 former members joined them for the closing "Whiffenpoof Song."
