The music of the Great American Songbook rang through the halls of Archer on Friday, Jan. 12. Harvard University‘s oldest a cappella group, The Krokodiloes, was performing at lunch for Archer students.

The Krokodiloes were founded in 1946 and currently features 12 undergraduate students. The group has entertained luminaries such as Ella Fitzgerald, Yo-Yo Ma, Elizabeth Taylor, Julia Roberts and Leonard Bernstein.

According to Visual and Performing Arts Chair Reed Farley, the Kroks — as they are referred to — reached out to Head of School Elizabeth English to perform at Archer.

The a cappella group is currently on their 2018 Winter Tour. Los Angeles is their third stop after performing in New York, New York and Vail, Colorado. After Archer, The Kroks traveled to San Francisco, California and Jasper, Canada.

Archer hosts an a capella groups each year. Past performances include The Whiffenpoofs from Yale University and  The Other Guys from the University of St. Andrews.
